Land use--Illinois--Rock River Valley

Abstract

This paper will try to correlate land use along a portion of the Rock River with the geological and topo­graphical features of the area. The main purpose is to describe and classify the various types of land use that border the Rock River and show the correlation of land use to physical terrain. The five primary types of land use mapped and described in the study are: recreational, residential, farming, woodland, and not useable. The distri­bution of these types will be located, analyzed, and pre­sented on a percentage basis.
