Paper Abstract

The study investigated wetland change in Wanning. For this purpose, three high resolution SPOT images recorded in 2002, 2007 and 2013, respectively, were classified. The results indicated that there were little change in wetland types during 2002 and 2013. The coastal waters, culture pond and river were the main wetland types. The natural wetland trended to decline. The ditch had the largest net increase and the reservoir shrank the most. There was a dramatic increase of culture pond plaques, which making the landscape more fragmentized. The coastal waters and the land had a lot change with other wetland types. The area change in Wanning was mainly composed of the transition between the land and culture pond.
