Abstract

This study conducted computer-aided image analysis of land use and land cover in Xilin River Basin, Inner Mongolia, using 4 sets of Landsat TM/ETM+ images acquired on July 31, 1987, August 11, 1991, September 27, 1997 and May 23, 2000, respectively. Primarily, 17 sub-class land cover types were recognized, including 9 grassland types. To eliminate the classification error existing among different sub-types of the same gross type, the 17 sub-class land cover types were grouped into 5 gross types : meadow grassland, temperate grassland, desert grassland, cropland and non-grassland
