This paper demonstrates an integrated method for studying cropland loss dynamics and the resultant impacts on sustainable development spanning the past 10 years (1996)(1997)(1998)(1999)(2000)(2001)(2002)(2003)(2004)(2005)(2006) in response to rampant urban growth. This study deploys remote sensing to obtain accurate measures of cropland change information and applies GIS to examine the spatio-temporal trajectory of cropland loss. Coupled with landscape metrics and soil quality assessmentdoi:10.1016/j.cities.2010.09.005 fatcat:kdysz3tnqze3jh5ngll2itp7a4
