Paper Abstract

The theory of fractal is a new tool for studying spatial pattern of land use, and the techniques of remote sensing and GIS offer a technical support. Firstly, under the support of RS and GIS, the classification information of land use is extracted from the Lands ant TM imageries of the Baiyang River of two periods (2000 and 2005),and a spatial database of land use is built. Secondly, in order to improve the understanding about the land use change about the Baiyang River, we use the fractal model to calculate fractal indices of different landscape patterns, Combining some landscape indices including the indices of the landscape diversity, the landscape fragmentation, the landscape shape and landscape separation, we analyze the characteristics of land use change quantificationally and provide sustainable development of land use with several pieces of advice in the end.
