[dataset] MapSPAM Physical Area

This dataset is part of the MapSPAM series on spatial production. It is produced as a result of the MapSPAM Model Process. Physical area represents the actual area in which a crop is grown, regardless of how often it was harvested. It is calculated for each production system (irrigated farming system, rainfed-high input farming system, rainfed-low input farming system, rainfed subsistence farming system) and each culture counting the sum of all physical areas of the four production systems.
