Part of the Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing book series (RDIP, volume 6)


One of the conclusions from the previous chapters in this volume is that enormous progress has been made over the past decade in land-cover and land-use change research. The community has made great strides in implementing the original research agendas that have been described in international, national, and agency plans (Liverman et al., 1993; Turner et al., 1993; Turner et al., 1995; Janetos et al., 1996; IGBP 1999; Lambin et al., 1999).a
