Remote Sensing and Land Use/Land Cover Trajectories
Socio-economic activities have been one of the most important factors for land cover change trajectories. In place of two dates of change in satellite imageries, researchers are more focus on temporal land cover change trajectories [1-3]. In European Union (EU) 43% land is farmland, 26% arable and for Czech Republic it`s 54% and 37% respectively [4]. Only 17% of farmland is farmed by the landowners and this is the second lowest in EU (Eurostat). Within Europe growing environmental problems in recent decades frequently ensue from dominant trends in the current use of agricultural land [4]. Earlier land cover change in Czech Republic have analysed by many authors. These studies focused on the influence of extreme fragmentation of agricultural land, their ownership and rural landscape patterns [5,6]. Historical maps reaching back to the mid-18th century were used by [7] to analyse long-term land-cover changes in 21 cadastral units of Central Bohemia, Czech Republic. They mention that 18% to 5% permanent grassland and 6% to less than 1% surface water area were decreased in Czech Republic.
