Civil Government: Monitor Land Use and Urban Development

Demo: Large Scale Thematic Change Detection

Civil and local governments across the world need to make timely decisions about their lands they steward and the communities they serve.

Explore how you can leverage high-frequency Planet Imagery in ArcGIS pro to create workflows that enable you to monitor large scale land-use change. Manage public lands with rapid thematic change detection, tracking land-use changes like:
  • Forest to urban areas
  • Non-agricultural land to urban use, and
  • Agricultural land to urban use.

The demo combines Planet’s high resolution basemaps with data sets like National Land Cover Classification and leverages on-the-fly-processing in ARcGIS Pro to generate classification on demand.
