Land use and cover change is a leading edge topic in the current research field of global environmental changes and case study of typical areas is an important approach understanding global environmental changes. Taking Qiantang River (Zhejiang, China) as an example, this study explores automatic classification of land use using remote sensing technology and analyzes historical space-time change by remote sensing monitoring, which provide new methods for optimizing land use structure and

It is of great importance to the sustainable development of Qiantang River basin and the whole Zhejiang province. This study combines spectral angle mapping (SAM) with multi-source information and creates a convenient and efficient high precision land use computer automatic classification method which meets the application requirements and is suitable for complex landform of the studied area. This work analyzes the histological space-time characteristic of land use and cover change in 2001, 2007 and 2014, providing a strong information support and new research method for optimizing Qiantang River land use structure and achieving optimal allocation of land resources and scientific management.
