Remote sensing based analysis of land cover and land cover change in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this study, the author gains information about land cover and land cover change in Central Sulawesi on the basis of a Landsat 7/ETM+ time series. He applies a modern object-oriented approach which allows the analysis of non-spectral features (e.g. shape, spatial relations, thematic data) and goes beyond the pure isolated statistical examination of each pixel's spectral values offered by traditional remote sensing techniques. The gathered results on land cover change provide essential information for socioeconomic as well as ecological research activities for the research area, where vast areas of intact rain forests still exist but are currently faced with increasing exploitation by the rural population. - (IFL)
