Study on the Changes of Land Use in Xinjiang Altay Region in Recent 15 Years
In this paper, We obtain the data of the temporal and spatial dynamic change of land use of three phrases (the end of 1980’s, the end of 1990’s, 2005), and the distribution of the salinized cultivated land use in 2005 in the area of Aletai by using the methods of remote sensing and geography information systems, and carry on the spatial statistics analysis on the change process which reflects the characters of changes of land use in Aletai. The results are as follows within the 5 years from the end of 1990’s to 2005 in Aletai, the areas of grassland and water were obviously reduced, the area of farmlands was significantly enlarged, On the whole other change degrees are smaller than that from the end of 1980’s to the end of 1990’s.
