Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Forests Under Different Management Regimes Using Landsat and Irs Images

Abstract

Following the empirical study, cloud-free satellite data were used to study the forests in multi-temporal dimensions. Use of remote sensing data with visual observation/ground truth data is an advanced tool to study and understand the development patterns of the forests. Based on the vegetation index and land cover map a sound development has been observed in the community conserved forest (CCF) in comparison to other forests of the region. Community-based conservation would contribute to new conservation approaches that facilitate achieving the goal of sustainable landscape development in the mountains of the Indian Himalayan region.
