Abstract This study explores a spatiotemporal comparative analysis of urban agglomeration, comparing the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) of Canada and the city of Tianjin in China. The vegetation–impervious surface–soil (V–I–S) model is used to quantify the ecological composition of urban/peri-urban environments with multitemporal Landsat images (3 stages, 18 scenes) and LULC data from 1985 to 2005. The support vector machine algorithm and several knowledge-based methods are applied to… 
Using multisource data and the V-I-S model in assessing the urban expansion of Riyadh city, Saudi Arabia
ABSTRACT This paper examines the application of remote sensing, based on the Vegetation-Impervious surface-Soil (V-I-S) model and spatial metrics, in an urban analysis for promoting sustainability
Urban growth dynamics based on surface Albedo changes in Petrolina, Brazil
Cities keep growing, and in most of the cases this expansion process is hard to model and describe for planning actions. Quantitative methods are increasingly used to help planning, monitoring, and
Driving forces of impervious surface in a world metropolitan area, Shanghai: threshold and scale effect
Improved understanding of the threshold effect and scale effect will help guide future urban planning and design new urban ecosystem policies, in which population density was the most significant.
Detecting horizontal and vertical urban growth from medium resolution imagery and its relationships with major socioeconomic factors
ABSTRACT Urban growth consists of horizontal and vertical expansions. An integrative framework for estimating horizontal and vertical expansions of city urban areas using Landsat images was
Improving Urban Impervious Surface Mapping by Linear Spectral Mixture Analysis and Using Spectral Indices
Abstract As a key indicator of urban built-up areas, impervious surfaces have been frequently analyzed in the studies of urbanization and environmental impacts. For various science and policy
A Feature-Based Approach of Decision Tree Classification to Map Time Series Urban Land Use and Land Cover with Landsat 5 TM and Landsat 8 OLI in a Coastal City, China
The FBA-DTC method presented here is a valuable technique for evaluating urban growth and changes in LULC classification for coastal cities and distinguishes between fallow land and cropland, and separates high-rise buildings from beaches and water bodies.
DMBLC: An Indirect Urban Impervious Surface Area Extraction Approach by Detecting and Masking Background Land Cover on Google Earth Image
A novel indirect ISA extraction conceptual model and a new detecting and masking background land cover (DMBLC) approach that uses a freely available, high-resolution dataset; requires a reduced set of training samples; and consists of relatively simple, common, and feasible image processing steps.
Highway runoff stormwater management potential (HRSMP) site characterization using NASA public domain imagery.
The focus of this research project was the development of geospatial technology (GST) methodology to characterize and evaluate highway runoff stormwater management potential (HRSMP) sites in order to
Detection of water abundance in Baluran National Park with landsat satellite imagery analysis
The extreme drought conditions will be very dangerous for the survival of flora and fauna in Baluran National Park that are in desperate need of water and potentially in danger of a fire.
Improving impervious surface estimation: an integrated method of classification and regression trees (CART) and linear spectral mixture analysis (LSMA) based on error analysis
Classification and regression tree (CART) has been widely implemented to estimate impervious surface, an important indicator of urbanization and environmental quality. Although the CART algorithm


Urban growth and change analysis using remote sensing and spatial metrics from 1975 to 2003 for Hanoi, Vietnam
Since the beginning of the ‘Doi Moi’ policy in 1986, Hanoi has witnessed significant changes in its urban areas. Landsat and Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER)
Exploring a V-I-S (vegetation-impervious surface-soil) model for urban ecosystem analysis through remote sensing: comparative anatomy for cities
Abstract Growing interest in urban systems as ecological entities calls for some standards in parameterizing biophysical composition of urban environments. A vegetation-impervious surface-soil (
Spatio-temporal pattern of urban land cover evolvement with urban renewal and expansion in Shanghai based on mixed-pixel classification for remote sensing imagery
Accuracy analysis demonstrates that PCRMdd represents a robust and effective tool for mixed-pixel classification on remote sensing imagery to obtain reliable soft classification results and endmember spectral information in a noisy environment.
Synergistic use of optical and InSAR data for urban impervious surface mapping: a case study in Hong Kong
A wide range of urban ecosystem studies, including urban hydrology, urban climate, land use planning and watershed resource management, require accurate and up‐to‐date geospatial data of urban
