Abstract
An understanding of the landscape dynamics has great implications for land management.
Knowing the landscape structure, the nature and magnitude of its changes, and how it
affects landscape processes are essential in the sound management of lands and their
resources. To develop appropriate mapping and landscape structural change assessment
techniques, a case study of the Lockyer Valley catchment in Queensland, Australia, was
conducted. Adopting a post-classification change detection method, the study used
Landsat MSS (1973) and TM (1997) imagery which were separately classified using
