In addition to emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases from energy, industrial, agricultural, and other activities, humans also affect climate through changes in land use (activities taking place on land, like growing food, cutting trees, or building cities) and land cover (the physical characteristics of the land surface, including grain crops, trees, or concrete).

Definition: This entry contains the percentage shares of total land area for three different types of land use: agricultural land, forest, and other; agricultural land is further divided into arable land - land cultivated for crops like wheat, maize, and rice that are replanted after each harvest, permanent crops - land cultivated for crops like citrus, coffee, and rubber that are not.

The Land Use Decree of 29 Marchissued by the federal military government,1 stipulates that the Military Governor of each state is to be the sole controller and manager of all urban lands within that state, and all other land subject to the Decree, is under the control of the local government in- charge of the area where the said land is Cited by: 4.

Remote Sensing and GIS offer quick and efficient approach to the classification and mapping of land use/land cover changes over space and time. Information on changes in resource classes, direction, area and pattern of land use-land cover classes form the basis for future planning.

Changes in Land Use/ Land Cover, During this period, the built-up area increased by km2 (%) with an annual change of cultivated area also increased by km2( This study aims to (1) describe land use/land cover changes that have taken place in Nigeria in the study period of 10 years (–), (2) determine the factors that drive those changes with.

The Problematic Land use and land cover change analysis is one of the most precise techniques to understand how land was used in the past, types of changes expected in the future as well.

The Blue Marble Next Generation data set provides a monthly global cloud-free true-color picture of the Earth's land cover at a meter spatial resolution.

This visualization of the data set shows seasonal variations such as snowfall, spring greening and droughts in a seamless fashion, thereby heightening awareness of changes in the Earth's climate. the land. It also refers to evaluation of the land with respect to various natural characteritics.

Land Use and Land Cover Historically, rivers have played a major role in the development of the region’s economy and land-use patterns. When European settlers first arrived in New England during the early seventeenth century, they found as much as 95 percent of the land covered with forests (Beattie and others, ).

Indeed, Nigeria appears poised to overhaul aspects of its land governance system. In July,President Goodluck Jonathan directed the Presidential Committee on Land Reform to work out modalities for the repeal of the Land Use Act of That Act had nationalized all land in Nigeria, and attempted to do away with customary land tenure.

Nigeria is a reflection of land use planning. The paper explains that relationship among land uses in Nigeria is a reflection of land reform and land theories.

The findings of this paper is that both direct and indirect causes inhibits proper land use planning in Nigeria such as land clearance for agriculture and.

Land use/ Land cover classification Land cover refers to the material/ object present in the particular terrain e.g. vegetation, water bodies, rocks/soils and other resulting form from land transformations.

Although land use is generally inferred based on the cover, yet both the terms land use and land cover being closely related are. use of multispectral reflectance data for mapping landuse and landcover has become an integral component Table 2 gives a breakdown of the change analysis of contemporary land use studies [4].

According to the Land Use Law ofthe governor of each state holds all land of the state and administers it in trust for the people.
