Author(s): Dwivedi Laxmi, Sen Gupta Dev, Tripathi Shashikant
Abstract: The temporal change (2006 to 2014) in land use / land cover has been studied using temporal satellite data of Satna district. Land Use and Land Cover mapping is of great significance in scientific, research, planning and management. Regional land use pattern reflects the character of interaction between man and environment and influence to the mankind’s basic economic activities. Due to advancement in satellite sensors, their analysis techniques are making remote sensing systems fruitful, realistic and attractive for use in research and management of natural resources. Land use map is a valuable tool for agricultural and natural resources studies, updation of these maps are essential due to strength of natural resources, Remotely sensed satellite images provides a synoptic overview of the terrain or earth in a very short time span. The major aim of this study is to prepare land use land cover and their change detections. The integration of remote sensing and GIS is a topic of general interest in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing and GIS. It mainly contributes to two kinds of applications: one is GIS database updating by remote sensing images and the other is remote sensing analysis by the support of GIS data. These two aspects complement each other to make the GIS databases updated continually.
