Abstract

Abstract The use of Geoinformatics in mapping land use/land cover is adopted for its cost-effective and efficiency in studying temporal changes over a large scale. Interaction of Man and its environments has greatly changed the appearance of our surroundings in time. The change detection of land use/land cover has been carried out in Zunheboto Sadarblock of Zunheboto district, Nagaland. The reason for choosing this area is that it is the most populated place in Zunheboto District and there need of proper information to the residents about the changing land use/land cover for maintaining sustainable environments. Supervised classification of Landsat Satellite image for year 2009 and 2019 were carried out and 7 classes were delineated for both the years and compared. The 7 classes are River, Jhum cultivation, Settlements, Terrace cultivation, Sparse vegetation, Dense Vegetation and Moderate Vegetation. The topography of the study area is hilly where Jhum and Terrace cultivation are often practiced. The study shows that the area of Settlements and Sparse vegetation has increased from 524ha to 722ha and 692ha to 1530ha respectively, Moderate vegetation has increased from 3329ha to 3615ha and Dense vegetation has decreased from 6692ha to 5478ha in the span of 10 years. Keywords: Landuse, Landcover, Lansat, LULC, Change detection matrix, Zunheboto.
