This paper analyzed land cover changes in Gazipur Sadar – an important urban fringe of expanding Dhaka City, Bangladesh, by leveraging remotely sensed imageries between 1973 and 2017. Landsat images of1973, 1991, 2006, and 2017 were classified using widely-preferred supervised classification method. Compared against groundtruth data, the reported c...
This paper has been developed to capture the land coverage change in Gazipur Sadar Upazila with the help of remote sensing data of 44 years from 1973 to 2017. After acquiring the study area image of 1973, 1991, 2006 and 2017 supervised classification method has been used to get the accurate information from the satellite image and the whole outcome...
