Land Use /Land Cover Change Detection Mapping Using Satellite Data, Along The Thiruvallur Coastal Stretch, Tamil Nadu,South India

Authors(2) :-Nithu Raj , B. Gurugnanam

The land use information collected for thiruvallur coastal stretches, from the analysis of Landsat data for the years 2013-2016. The main objective of this paper is to evaluate and quantify the land use/ land cover and its changes of thiruvallur coastal stretch using multi-temporal satellite images and change detection analysis. The changes were carried out using image processing and ArcGIS software. The result indicates growth of the land with scrub and while there were decreases in agriculture lands. The study proves that some significant changes of land use /land cover in the coastal stretch. This provides information is useful to local planners managers and to set up towards sustainable development in the study area.
