Meta-discoveries from a synthesis of satellite-based land-cover mapping research
Since the launch of the first land-observation satellite (Landsat-1) in 1972, land-cover mapping has accumulated a wide range of knowledge in the peer-reviewed literature. However, this knowledge hasExpand

Urban growth models: progress and perspective
Urban growth models have been developed and extensively adopted to study urban expansion and its impact on the ambient environment. These models can be employed in urban policymaking or analyses ofExpand

A multi-resolution global land cover dataset through multisource data aggregation
Recent developments of 30 m global land characterization datasets (e.g., land cover, vegetation continues field) represent the finest spatial resolution inputs for global scale studies. Here, weExpand

A systematic sensitivity analysis of constrained cellular automata model for urban growth simulation based on different transition rules
Cellular automata (CA) have emerged as a primary tool for urban growth modeling due to its simplicity, transparency, and ease of implementation. Sensitivity analysis is an important component in CAExpand

Monitoring Annual Urban Changes in a Rapidly Growing Portion of Northwest Arkansas with a 20-Year Landsat Record
Northwest Arkansas has undergone a significant urban transformation in the past several decades and is considered to be one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. The urban areaExpand

Integrating ensemble-urban cellular automata model with an uncertainty map to improve the performance of a single model
Transition rules are the core of urban cellular automata (CA) models. Although the logistic cellular automata (Logistic-CA) is commonly used for rules extraction, it cannot always achieveExpand

Mapping Urban Land Use by Using Landsat Images and Open Social Data
High-resolution urban land use maps have important applications in urban planning and management, but the availability of these maps is low in countries such as China. To address this issue, we haveExpand

An “exclusion-inclusion” framework for extracting human settlements in rapidly developing regions of China from Landsat images
Abstract Satellite based human settlement extraction at medium resolution (30 m) with supervised classification has been widely carried out. However, adequate training sample collection and mappingExpand
