EAST TIMOR AGRICULTURAL ANDLAND USE GIS
  • Project funded under AusAID
  • Implemented by
  • AGWEST International
  • in association with NGIS

BACKGROUND
  • In the 16th century Timor became a Portuguese
    colony and trading partner
  • Portugals interest in Timor wanes in the 1950s
    and
  • 1960s
  • Emergence of political associations May 1974
  • Decolonization discussions begin May 1975
  • August 1975 Fretilin emerge from a period of
    internal
  • conflict as the dominant political force and
    form a
  • Government without waiting for full
    decolonization
  • Indonesia formally invades Timor 7 Dec. 1975

5
RECENT EVENTS
  • After almost 25 years under Indonesian governance
    East Timor overwhelmingly votes for independence
    in August 1999 in an internationally supervised
    plebiscite.
  • Indonesian forces and pro-Indonesian militia
    proxies go on a rampage of violence and
    destruction
  • 250,000 flee to West Timor, many more move to the
    safety of hill villages

6
INTERFET
  • September 99 an interim peace keeping force
    under the UN Provides security
  • May 2000 under a UN mandate a Transitional
    Administration is established including Timorese
    and UN advisors
  • Interim government established after national
    elections in August 2001.

AUSTRALIAN ASSISTANCE 
  • Under the CAPACITY BUILDING FOR EAST TIMOR
    PROGRAM Australia provided assistance to the
    Division of Agricultural Affairs (DAA) (now
    Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries)
  • Assistance provided by way of the Agricultural
    Landuse Mapping and GIS Development and Training
    Project (ALGIS Project) and implemented by AGWEST
    International between January and November 2001.
  • The project has recently been extended for a 2nd
    phase from January to December 2002.

9
THE ALGIS PROJECT
  • The Project aims to assist with the
    rehabilitation of agricultural services through
    the development of agricultural databases and
    digital mapping capability but with the
    following initial objectives
  • Collection of information and development of
    database system for use by trained land use
    planning staff.
  • Retrieval of landuse information and the
    establishment of a GIS for use by trained land
    use planning staff.
  • Establishment of a secure, climate-controlled
    storage area for historical hard copies of data,
    map charts and similar records and computer
    equipment.

10
PROJECT ACTIONS
  • Review availability of land and related
    information and acquire
  • Establish a GIS laboratory
  • Mobilize remaining consultants
  • Develop an initial directory of databases
  • Recruit and train counterparts
  • Expand databases and data presentation capability

11
ACQUISITION OF HISTORICAL DATA
  • Data available in East Timor
  • East Timor land resources data available in
    Australia, Indonesia and Portugal 
  • Review and evaluate

12
MOBILIZATION OF CONSULTANT TEAM
  • Agricultural Data Manager / Team Leader
  • Computer Data Management Specialist
  • Agricultural GIS Specialist
  • Land Resources GIS Technician
  • Provided 22 person months of services between
    February and November 2001

13
ESTABLISH THE GIS FACILITY
  • LAN based on Windows 2000 with 3 Work-stations
    and 2 spare terminals and full range of
    peripherals and UPS
  • GIS software based on ArcView? 3.2a, and ER
    Mapper
  • Hardware and software installed by NGIS
  • Air-conditioned room which also serves as map
    storage

14
DEVELOP INITIAL DIRECTORY OF DATABASES AND
PRODUCTS
  • Datasets recovered from external sources provided
    the initial databases on which the subsequent
    system was established
  • Constant review of suitability and applicability
    of data and substitution with updated information

15
RECRUIT AND TRAIN COUNTERPARTS
  • Counterparts recruited to manage and operate the
    ALGIS Unit received both formal and on-the-job
    training. Budget limitations meant staff were
    only became available as funds were released by
    Government
  • 1. GIS Unit Manager from March 2001
  • 2. Remote sensing specialist from August 2001
  • 3. Database management specialist October 2001

16
FORMAL TRAINING
  • March 2 weeks Databases MS Access local
  • Apr-May 4 weeks Introduction to GIS Perth
  • May-Jun 6 weeks Agricultural databases local
  • May-Jun 2 weeks Forest inventory/database local
  • June 1 week Introduction to forest
    soils local
  • June 1 week Digitizing local
  • August 1 week Digitizing local
  • Sep-Oct 3 weeks Introduction to ArcView local
  • October 1 week Advanced GIS/Spatial Anal. local
  • Novemb 1 week LAN and server ops. local
  • Novemb 1 week Landuse mapping local
  • Novemb 0.5 week Management Info.Systems local

17
EXPAND DATABASES AND PRESENTATION OF DATA
  • Incorporate locally generated data
  • social survey covering 500 village areas
    (suco)
  • agricultural survey of 100 villages and 1800
  • households
  • reconnaissance land-use survey of East Timor
  • Production of new base maps corrected to accepted
  • coordinates
  • Generation of new maps from old surveys and
    thematic
  • maps from newly acquired data
  • review of Portuguese soil data
  • interpretation of village surveys data for
    multi-users
  • 4. Expansion of library of Remotely Sensed data

18
CONTENTS OF THE EAST TIMORAGRICULTURAL LAND
INFORMATION SYSTEM
  • The following slides provide examples of the
    various aspects of the ALGIS Information System
  • Physical Data
  • Administration
  • Land Resources
  • Socio-economic data

19
PHYSICAL DATA
  • The following section contains examples of the
    baseline data in the ALGIS. Unfortunately the
    topographic information is derived from scanned
    and rectified topographic maps.
  • This situation will be remedied with receipt of
    new mapping recently completed on behalf of the
    Australian Military command

ADMINISTRATION
  • The district and sub-district boundaries have
    been extrapolated from earlier Indonesian maps.
  • The village/suco boundaries which, in general,
    follow those originally shown on the 1989-1992
    Indonesian maps are still to be agreed by the
    East Timor people

LAND RESOURCES
  • This includes Land Use data captured from
    September 2000 Landsat TM and extensive ground
    traverses. These surveys were undertaken by ALGIS
    staff.
  • Soil data is derived from earlier Portuguese soil
    surveys from mid-late 1960s. A comprehensive
    soil/land suitability database is being compiled
    by ALGIS from these early records

SOCIO-ECONOMIC DATA
  • Socio-economic data is derived primarily from the
    2000/2001 suco(village) survey of all villages.
  • The suco as a spatial unit varies in size from
    tens of hectares to more than 10,000ha.
  • Analysis of the recently completed household
    survey will provide a strong insight into
    agricultural production and food security.

THE FUTURE
  • For the Australian government to be satisfied
    that the investment in the ALGIS project has been
    worthwhile the ALGIS unit must
  • provide a service needed by Agriculture
    and the new
  • government of East Timor and
  • the unit must be able to function in a
    sustainable way
  • AusAID has confidence in the sustainability of
    ALGIS and continues to provide support for the
    further consolidation of gains already made in
    the development of an expanded capacity in land
    use evaluation and planning.

38
THE FUTURE IS SECURE
  • The ALGIS continues to be the principal
    government agency involved in production of
    thematic and general maps in East Timor
  • ALGIS is supporting many foreign assisted
    projects in the agricultural and natural
    resources sectors
  • ALGIS staff are improving their knowledge and
    skills through attendance at conferences such as
    this and at overseas training and visits by GIS
    experts to East Timor
