Abstract: The magnitude and rate of forest cover change over the past 30 years in Adaba-Dodola district, Ethiopia have been investigated. The forest cover map based on land use/land cover of the area is generated by using remote sensing (RS) and geographic information system (GIS) techniques. The mainland use/land cover types have been identified as dense forest, open forest, grassland, agriculture, settlement, and water body after collecting and examining literature and information from… Expand

TLDR
It was seen that the LULC changes were mostly occurred in coastal areas and in areas having low slope values, while the land cover changes were analyzed according to the topographic structure (slope and altitude) by using GIS functions. Expand
State of the Art of Land Use Planning Using Remote Sensing and GIS
TLDR
The applicability of Remote sensing and Geographical Information system to solve problems in agricultural related to land use planning using remote sensing and GIS is discussed. Expand

Status of land cover classification accuracy assessment
TLDR
It is likely that it is unlikely that a single standardized method of accuracy assessment and reporting can be identified, but some possible directions for future research that may facilitate accuracy assessment are highlighted. Expand
