Paper Abstract

The Great Wall segments in Ningxia and Shaanxi Provinces, built in Ming dynasty, actually lies in several transition zones, such as agriculture and pasture land, semi-humid and semi-arid zone, monsoon area and non-monsoon area and so on. As a result, the ecological environment around the Great Wall is very sensitive and fragile, and is easily to be destroyed. So in this paper, we used a new technical route to analyze the environmental change around this part of the Great Wall and meanwhile put forward some measures to protect its environment. To describe the spatial-temporal pattern of environment along the Ming Great Wall, we choose some indices to analyze its change, such as the vegetation, soil, moisture and so on [1]. All of them are retrieved from multi-temporal and multi-source remote sensing images. By comparing above parameters, we draw the conclusion that is the environment along the Ming Great Wall is becoming worse and worse.
