Land classification, land surface temperature and normalized difference vegetation index using modis - a case study in Madrid, Spain

Juan Gonzalo Arango

Resumen


The purpose of this study was to use the MODIS products in order to analyze and correlate
Land Classification (MCD12Q1), Land Surface Temperatures (MOD11A2) and Normalized
Difference Vegetation Indices (MOD13A2) in the City of Madrid and its surrounding areas, in order to validate the concept that remote sensing is a useful tool to develop guidelines on urban and territorial planning. Results show that the 42% of the area that surrounds Madrid has been designated for croplands while the rest of the area has been designated for woody savannas (19.84%), open shrublands (15.50%) and grasslands (7.77%). At the same time, results present the high correlation that all of the MODIS products have, based on the seasonal changes of the Land Surface Temperatures and the Normalized Difference Vegetation Indices.
