Abstract:
A study integrating remote sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) was carried out in the Kuala Terengganu district, Terengganu, Malaysia to map and determine the land use change as a result of development pressure in the area. Two sets of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) dated 31 July 1988 and 14 July 2002, at scale 1: 150 000 were acquired. Land use classes were interpreted from these images and the resultant maps were checked in the field to determine ground truth and mapping accuracy. The land use map data were transferred directly into the computer via ILWIS (Integrated Land Water and Water Information System) version 3.1 software. It shown that in this study seven categories of land use changes were detected namely forest (-9.93%), agricultural (-1.46%), swamp (-36.92%), urban (190.29%), cleared land (-21.43%), water bodies (-7.48%) and bush/shrub (6.34%). The accuracy assessment undertaken showed that the total accuracy for produced the map is 77.89%. This study showed that Landsat TM is a useful data for study in land use change.
