Geographical Accessibility and Land-Use and Land- Cover Dynamics: the Case of Nang Rong District, Northeast Thailand provides the practical methods to land use policies and the use of GIS and Remote Sensing. This book examines land use/land cover (LULe policies at the national, regional, and local levels, and geographic accessibility of villagers to communities and associated land territories. The policy analysis employed a documentary-style approach to describe the changes in environmental policy and LULC over time. Problems of soil quality, land degradation, land management, land allocation, and land rights were addressed within the policy analysis. The LULC change and road connectivity analysis used a time-series of aerial photography. Road connectivity was calculated using Alpha and Gamma indices. LULC changes in spatially-buffered areas were assessed for the all-weather roads, and pattern metrics were calculated to examine the composition and spatial organization of LULC over time and space. This book is aimed at GIS uses, resource planners, environmental scientists and others dealing with geosciences. It is valuable for both professionals and students.
