This decrease in vegetation has been as a result of anthropogenic activities in the study area but these were not investigated.
It is a discrete multivariate technique used in accuracy assessment .
The process of on-screen digitizing is similar to conventional digitizing. Study Area Owabi forest reserve Figure lb is located between latitudes 6 s 47' The secondary data included Landsat remote sensing data and Google Earth Imagery as data sources for derivation of generalized land-change information.
They further explained that degradation of forest have impact on catchment processes and biochemical cycles and leads to soil erosion and water shortage not only in the regions immediately affected by deforestation, but also in reasonably distant areas. Spatial resolution refers to the discernible detail in the image.
Forest cover today is altered primarily by direct human use and any conception of global change must include the pervasive influence of human action on land surface conditions and processes . Regional overviews require large coverage area and moderate resolution.
Remote sensing gives the overview required to 1 construct regional unit maps, useful for small scale analyses, and planning field traverses to sample and verify various units for detailed mapping; and 2 understand the spatial distribution and surface relationships between the units. As listed in Table 2there was consistent increase in the populated areas in the study area from Post-Classification Comparison Of many methods i.
Field survey will be carried out in a stratified random approach in order to acquire locations of southern yellow pine stands. The overall objective of this study is to map out and analyze the structural changes of forest cover using Landsat and ASTER imageries of the study area.
It is anticipated that the generated maps of southern yellow pine stands in Middle Tennessee will be shared with the TN Department of Agriculture, loggers and other stakeholders What do you plan to do during the next reporting period to accomplish the goals?
And then, the lake recovered back by occupying a significant area coverage of A lot of pillars had been erected giving an indication that someone was allocating the plots of land to prospective developers . Croplands having an area of Forest Policy and Economics, Vol. Calculating the water indices for each year was carried out on raster calculator.
Many measurements have been proposed to improve the interpretation of the error matrix, among which the Kappa coefficient is one of the most popular measures.
Supervised maximum likelihood algorithm and Unsupervised ISOCLASS algorithm classification techniques will be performed in order to delineate and classify the softwood species stands. This has being one of the major problems of remote sensing .
Even within a given feature type, the proportion of reflected, absorbed, and transmitted energy will vary at different wavelengths. Further analysis of these factors is needed to better explain the impact of these factors on forest cover change. Invasive Banmara Chromolaena Odorata: Prediction of scenario carried out using neural network, which is a built-in module in the Idrisi.
Owabi Dam under Threat, Band 6 Modified from  3. Some applications like geological mapping need imaging only once.
Rather than using a digitizer and a cursor, the user creates Figure 5. VIR remote sensing provides the multispectral information relating to the composition of the unit, while radar can contribute textural information.
The author also would like to thank anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments.International Journal of Remote Sensing Applications Vol. 2 Iss.

The requirement for high quality remote sensing data is skyrocketing with the surge in the application of remote sensing techniques and with the ‘n’ number of researches carried out each day.
Every remote sensing analysis revolves around the term DATA with specified resolution, location, sensor. The Journal of Applied Remote Sensing is an electronic journal that optimizes the communication of concepts, information, and progress within the remote sensing community to improve the societal benefit for monitoring and management of natural disasters, weather forecasting, agricultural and urban land-use planning, environmental quality.
Remote Sensing data having good spectral and spatial resolution are found to be very effective in evaluating and monitoring land use and land cover changes (Lillesand et al., ). Remote sensing data are primarily used in change detection studies. Change detection involves the application of various image analysis techniques to multi-temporal images in order to quantify variations in the state and spatial distribution of phenomena and objects .
remote sensing change detection methods has been developed to monitor land cover change and to build spatio-temporal patterns of change, in order to derive better understanding of causes and consequences of the change, and to model the tendency of the change.Download
