Changes in land use can be due to urban expansion and loss of agricultural land, changes in river regimes and the effects of shifting cultivation, the spread of erosion and desertification and so on.
Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques provide effective tools for analyzing the land use dynamics of the region as well as for monitoring, mapping and management of natural resources.
