Land use and land cover (LULC) changes are an important field in global environmental change research. Inventory and monitoring of LULC change area indispensable aspects for further understanding of change mechanisms and modeling the impact of change on the environment and associated ecosystems at different scales. Remote sensing and digital image processing techniques are valuable data sources from which LULC change information can be extracted efficiently. The objective of this project is to detect the LULC changes in the Funil hydroelectric reservoir basin (Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil) by satellite images and digital image processing techniques; searching for causes and impacts that characterize the phenomenon.
