Beschreibung:

This book highlights urbanization and industrialization in china with concomitant Land use land cover changes. It investigates the concept of remote sensing techniques as an information source for temporal assessment of land-related development in the rural-urban fringe. Characteristics of the fringe urban areas and their relationship to remote sensing techniques are outlined. Change detection as a technique used in remote sensing to determine the changes in a particular object of study between two or more time periods is discussed. Change detection is an important process for monitoring and managing natural resources and urban development because it provides quantitative analysis of the spatial distribution in the area of interest. The book emphasized that Land cover changes play an important role on local and regional environmental conditions of that particular territory .As a whole the book is recommended reading for all researchers in urban, regional and natural resouces science. The various chapters present an excellent overview with detailed references to many important aspects of remote sensing land cover/use change analysis.
