Landuse change is a common issue. Due to population growth and increase the productive activitiesmade the changes. The processes of the landuse changes are slow, for that it is difficult to identify thechanges. But Remote Sensing (RS) technology and spectral image made it easier. On this paper thelanduse changes of the Rutbeek recreational area identified using RS data and finally ensure theaccuracy also done the field check. For this study used Landsat ETM image of 25 May 2001, IKONOSimage of 03 April 2000 (both pan and MS bands), ASTER VNIR Image of 12 September 2006 andTopo Map of the area. After the analysis found that the overall classification accuracy is 61.97 percent.
The objective of the project is to do a supervised image classification of a Landsat ETM image of theRutbeek recreational area, and to incorporation ground truth data collected during a fieldtrip foraccuracy assessment. Collected parametric signatures using two different tools, digitized polygon andseed growing, based on topographic map and visual IKONOS interpretation. Five classes were defined,namely water, forest, grassland, bare/arable crop, and heather. Evaluate the training data using fivedifferent methods to check whether there is any mixed pixels that could confuse classification process.Perform maximum likelihood parametric classification using supervised and fuzzy classification methods.Collecting ground truth data from the fieldwork. Combine all the ground truth data and use this data foraccuracy assessment. After the analysis found that the overall classification accuracy is 61.97 percent.The major causes of low accuracy rate were the different year data sources are used. (Map of 2001versus field check in 2009), time or season of the base image and field check year was not same (Mapwas in May 2001 and field check in October) and landuse change due to the long time of the base map.
Location of the Area
The Rutbeek recreational area is located South of Enschede. The terrain is flat to almost flat, withsandy soils. In the middle of the area, an artificial lake is found. The lake is surrounded by “swampareas”, “beaches”, parking lots and other recreational infra-structure. The agricultural land use is mainlymaize, cereals and grassland.The Rutbeek is a recreational area of approximately 120. In 1975 the layout of Het Rutbeek as arecreational area began around an erratic former sand excavation lake. Now it is a transformed area of120 hectares with trees, water parts, with beaches, laying meadows, grass land, and leisure facilities.The area is made up of one fen and five different beaches. On the South Western side of the lake thereis a place for nudist recreation. The area is shown with boards. It is clearly signposted also. There is afoot path around the lake.The nudist beach of approximately 3 hectares is mainly made up of laying meadows, on the water sidethere is a small beach. There is a toilet block on the nudist beach, further there are no facilities. On thetextile beach (after approx 1000 meters) there is a kiosk available. (Source: www.naaktstrandje.nl)
