Abstract

The objective of this study is to produce a land cover map of Accra, showing the recent spatial growth in order to assess the nature of this growth and the current spatial development trends. A second purpose is to test the adequacy of Landsat-TM images for urban change detection studies. Comments are made on the rationale for land cover mapping based on digital satellite images. The applied image processing method includes a texture-based classification method, pixel to vector conversion post processing in a vector-based geographical information system
