The accuracy of change detection on the earth’s surface is important for understanding the relationships and interactions between human and natural phenomena. Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have the potential to provide accurate information regarding land use and land cover changes. In this paper, we investigate the major techniques that are utilized to detect land use and land cover changes. Eleven change detection techniques are reviewed. An analysis of the related… Expand

Assessing different remote sensing techniques to detect land use/cover changes in the eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
Different change detection techniques were applied and an object-based supervised classification was used as a crossclassification to determine ‘from–to’ change which enabled assessment of the four techniques and the change vector analysis change detection technique was the most accurate model for handling the variability present in Mediterranean land use/cover.
