Geospatial Assessment of Land Use and Land Cover Patterns

Image The Black Volta Basin in Ghana has experienced some losses in its productive lands due to mining. This study assessed the Land use/cover (LULC) changes within the Basin for a period of eighteen years, and mapped current and potential mining hotspots in the Basin. The study used multispectral Landsat images for the years 2000, 2015 and 2018. Supervised classification method and Spectral Angle Mapper were used to classify and map the LULC types. Feature-based extraction method was then used to delineate mining sites along the River in the Basin. Six (6) LULC types were classified. Findings fr... Read More

Check out the recent advances on Cadastral Boundary Extraction and Image Classification

Image The present work is based on the dynamic approach for the extraction of cadastral boundaries and image classification using machine learning algorithms. The efforts are focused on easing the map digitization process in the country. The Large Scale Mean Shift Segmentation algorithm was used for the delineation of cadastral boundaries from two different types of study regions taken up for study, based on their landforms-hills and plains. The quality of segmentation was measured by AssesSeg software. Models using classifiers-Random Forest and Support Vector Machines were trained and their effi... Read More
