Spatial Vegetation Change and Its Monitoring Using Geospatial Technologies

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

Monitoring of environmental changes has become a necessity owing to the current deteriorations, which come as a result of both natural and human activities. Acquiring information concerning the spatial and dynamic changes for a rapit vegetation monitoring is not easy. Therefore the present study provides monitoring of the spatial vegetation changes using geospatial technologies such as Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information System (GIS). In order to monitor and evaluate the spatial vegetation change, the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) technique will be employed. The NDVI technique involves the use of remote sensed data in two time series, annually (2000 and 2018) extracted from Landsat satellites. The NDVI technique can be employed for monitoring vegetation cover and it’s values range from -1 (barren area of rock) to 1 (dense vegetation). The performed results in the study will be for 2000 and 2018 for a specific part of Mitrovica, Kosova. The has been carried out by making terrain visits. The outcomes of this study hasve revealed that the vegetation has been subject to a rapid change in the last years. Furthermore, the study will answer to the many questions for spatial and temporal vegetation changes in Mitrovica and its change ratio as well.
