Özet

This application chapter discusses rural urban land use changes in developing countries using Buyukcekmece, a suburb of Istanbul, Turkey, as an example. Specifically, this chapter demonstrates the utility of remote sensing techniques, multitemporal satellite data, a 1984-1997 population database, and ground data to illustrate the impact of urban growth on land cover and land use changes in general and on agricultural land in particular.
