Identificación de Zonas Idóneas para el Cultivo de Cacao en Puerto Rico Utilizando la Tecnología Geoespacial
Flores Dones, Arvin J.
The Objective of the present work was to establish geographic features that will identify suitable for cocoa cultivation areas in Puerto Rico. To identify areas where the greatest potential for growing cacao, was used a spatial analysis tool of Arc GIS 10.1 software. Previously the necessary climatic factors (temperature and precipitation) and soil characteristics, which was to identify the area to be identified. Through of the interpolation, reclassification and map algebra tools, we determined that there are a significant portion of land, scattered around the island, which have the potential to revive agriculture and the overall economy through the reestablishment of the crop cocoa in Puerto Rico.
