Abstract

Remote sensing is widely used to capture the images of land use/cover on Earth. This paper study on the land use changes in Lojing, Kelantan of a two different years, which are 1989 and 2006. The land use are then classified and the classification scheme used was of those by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Land Use/ Land Cover Classification System. There are two methods used to do the classification, but for this paper only supervised classification method is used since it was proven by other research to be more accurate compared to unsupervised classification. Accuracy assessment is done to calculate the accuracy of the land use map produced so that at the end, a good quality of land use map is produced. The findings of this study is that, there had been an unsignificant land use changes between the year 1989 and 2006. The conclusion is, Lojing had been experiencing changes in term of land use due to the increased socioeconomic activities especially agriculture and logging at the highlands of Lojing.
