Land-Use and Land Cover Analysis and Dynamic Modelling: A Case Study of Imphal East District, Manipur

Irom Luckychand Meitei

Abstract: Mapping and monitoring of land-use and land cover (LULC) at a regional scale has its wide significance in understanding the field of urban planning and land debasement. In this study, the Imphal East's LULC classes, are being recognized for three points of time such 1988, 2003 and 2018. Performing Maximum likelihood supervised classification, the LULC classes are being classified and the accuracy assessment and overall classification accuracy are also carried out for each of the respective classified images. Additionally, Shannon Heterogeneity Diversity Indices (SHDI) and Landscape Shape Indices (LSI) helps in understanding the pattern and checked the planned and unplanned nature of the study area. Markov Modelling succours in the forecast of LULC classes in not so distant future. Among the LULC classes, built-up land enlists the biggest expansion which is seen in the northern and southern side of the study area.
