system for classifying suitability of region to the agricultural mechanization. Simple
basic theory of GIS and classification of agricultural mechanization were presented.
Nine physical and non-physical parameters as limiting factors were defined and a
weight of each parameter was calculated in order to know how far its effect to the
agricultural mechanization practice. Data coming from several types, ie: numeric,
vector and remote sensing (raster) were prepared to support the process. Two
ordoes consisting of five classes were employed to extract suitability classification
of each District in Jawa Barat dan Banten Province. The results show that ten
districts are classified into suitable for applying agricultural mechanization, and the
rest ten districts are classified into not suitable. Depending on the dynamic character
of limiting factor, suitability class would possibly change along the time. Saveral
conclusions and advices for improving research are given.
