Vegetation and land cover information have been generally recognised as the basis for planning and management and for detailed habitat inventories. The design and execution of these comprehensive inventories of natural resources, coupled with scientific assessments using Remote Sensing and GIS tools, have often led to a clear definition of management priorities. Vegetation management depends upon several factors including classification of habitats and the regular monitoring of these habitats permits the detection of change in vegetation components and immediate surroundings. The present study was conceived with a view to studying the land use/land cover of the southern parts of the Eastern Ghats in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu using Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems.
