Abstract
Physical and geographical factor are the main for Agro-Resource Assessment, which is multi-criterion and multidimensional. We considered a multi-faceted approach to optimal solution for solving this task. It has been possible to improve geographical (complex) research, agro landscape zoning of territory, optimal evaluation of natural conditions, assignment and assessment of places with different range and dimensional numerals. The methodology for assessing the agro-resource potential of the territories has been elaborated and the regularities of spatial distribution (hypsometric stages and types of landscapes) of the agro-cultures spread in the Adjara region are established. Based on the creation and development of numerous databases, large-scale landscape zoning has been carried out using GIS-technology.
