This study shows a 31 years multi-temporal changes in landuse and landcover in Ebonyi State, Southeastern Nigeria. Since 1996 when the study area became a State, Ebonyi has experienced significant changes in its landuse and landcover as a result of its fast urbanization process. Based on the unique advantage that multi-temporal observation offers, landsat imageries of 1984, 2000, 2007 and 2015 were sourced and analyzed using Erdas Imagine 9.2 and ArcGIS 10.2 tools for the spatio-temporal… Expand
