The article provides an assessment methodology of the erosion condition of agricultural landscapes based on remote sensing data. The methodology is based on a multi-parametric cartographic analysis with the use of geoinformation technologies. Currently, only a cartographic image can give a holistic view of the landscape erosion and the processes occurring in them, and resorting to the modern geoinformation systems (GIS) for its obtaining and analysis is becoming a compulsory requirement of our

The practical use of modern GIS technology in agroforestry practice allows automating the process of working with aero and space images and cartographic materials drawing up, which fully characterize the object of study. Remote cartographic studies have shown that the agricultural landscapes of the Dono-Chirskiy interfluve area need optimizing in land use and integrated agroforestry arrangement.
