  • Sri Lanka has tremendous semi-nature based wetland resources that have great potential for further development in Southern Asia. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of wetland expansion on land use/ land cover changes in southern Sri Lanka after 1980. This paper explores the use of image analysis approaches in mapping wetland land use and land cover. Spatial changes in the wetland area from 1983 to 2011 were analyzed using satellite remote sensing and GIS. Fourteen land use and… CONTINUE READING
