Abstract

In the present study, remote sensing and GIS tools are used to study the land use-land covers in M.I.T., Manipal. The base map is created from the Survey of India toposheet ID 48 K/15 in 1:50000 scale dated 1971. Landuse/landcover classification is done by identifying classes such as Built-up areas, road network, play grounds, vegetation, barren land, marshy land and water bodies. Resoursesat 2 & IRS 1D - LISS 3 satellite imagery data set has been used to delineate Landuse/landcover classification. For accuracy assessment, Error matrix and Kappa analysis was done. The Overall accuracy of the land cover study is 75%.Change detection for land use and land cover classes were computed by using satellite images of different years
