Comparative Assessment of the Unsupervised Land Use Classification by Using Proprietary GIS and Open Source Software

Abstract Mapping and investigating land use land cover (LULC) changes over a particular region is crucial for resource management, sustainability development, and holistic planning. An increasing rate of urban growth and urban sprawl could induce changes in land use as well as land transformation. However, accurate and up-to-date information about LULC is required for providing better understanding and assessing the environmental consequences of such changes.  In this study, the 2017 image from the Sentinel-2A Satellite was utilized to demonstrate the land cover classification analysis in Iskandar Malaysia. Usually, land use classification analysis is conducted through proprietary GIS software. However, this decade shows the advancement in software development, thus the emerging of free/open source software in the geospatial world.  Hence, to execute land cover analysis using the Unsupervised Classification technique, the proprietary GIS software (ArcGIS) and free/open source software

QFieldCloud now in 'beta' testing

For a long time Open Source GIS users wanted a tool that integrates with QGIS for taking desktop projects out in the field, collecting data 'offline' and syncing the collected back into 'PostGIS'. ESRI users are probably more familiar with 'ArcGIS Workforce' or similar tools but we had to wait or sign up to 'Lutra's 'input/mergin/mappin' suite which looks remarkably similar to QField. Finally...I've got my call up to join the 'QFieldCloud' 'beta' testers. Why not join yourself and preregister here and help make it even better:- This will not 'alas' be a completely free product there will be typical cloud subscriptions attached eventually. Wonder if this 'bee' has a name yet?
