   Since its creation in 1961, the state of Hawaii's Agricultural land use district has been the catch-all district, including all lands that are neither Urban nor Conservation.  The Agricultural district covers nearly half of the state's land area and contains lands of varying suitability for agriculture.  Over the years, a number of land classification systems have been generated to improve land use decision-making regarding agricultural lands.  Land classification systems available in GIS data will be discussed, including: Agricultural Lands of Importance to the State of Hawaii (ALISH), Land Evaluation Suitability Assessment (LESA), and Land Study Bureau's Soil Productivity (LSB).

Mele Chillingworth, one of our 2009 scholarship award winners, is currently enrolled at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, pursuing two graduate degrees: a Masters in Natural Resource and Environmental Management and a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning. Her experience with GIS and geospatial data includes research for the National Park Service in the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail, creating maps for an analysis of "unstudied" irrigation systems, and a stint as a teaching assistant in a GIS course for resource managers.
