Land use land cover change detection analysis using multi temporal satellite images: A case study of Bankura district, West Bengal, India

Nirupam Acharyya, Jatisankar Bandyopadhyay, Suman Das, Annadasankar Bera

This study is carried out to analyze the different land use and land cover (lulc) changes over the period of thirty years in Bankura district, West Bengal. The estimation of land use and land cover and their relation with land conversion is one of the important studies in this region. Satellite Remote sensing and GIS techniques have played a key role in studying different types of lulc changes and different causes behind the conversion of land that have been increased in recent years. Multispectral temporal satellites data are the best options to monitor assess and estimate the changes. The land use land cover map and different indices (NDVI, NDWI, and NDBI) are calculated for further analysis. Different image processing software’s was used to analyze and execute the overall study. Finally, a change detection map was obtained by integrating different indices. The overall analysis shows that there is a high declination rate of vegetation areas that has been entirely changed into different man-made structures.
