Abstract: IN THE SOUTHERN GREENLAND SHEEP-BREEDING IS CRUCIAL FOR THE SELF-RELIANCE ECONOMY. THE NATURAL CONDITIONS ARE BRIEFLY DESCRIBED AS BAKCGROUND FOR THE MAPPING WHICH BY MEANS OF NDVI AND PRINCIPAL COMPONENT ANALYSIS OF LANDSAT MSS DATA HAS PROVEN VERY POWERFUL. THE ARTICLE DEALS WITH A MAPPING PROJECT THAT WAS CARRIED OUT IN ORDER TO ASSESS THE CARRYING CAPACITY. THE ASPECTS OF GROWING SEASON, CLIMATE AND LANDSCAPE VARIATION ARE DISCUSSED. THE INVESTIGATION WAS CARRIED OUT AT THE INSTITUTE FOR GEOGRAPHY, SOCIO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE, ROSKILDE UNIVERSITY CENTRE, DENMARK.
