(1) Title: Land use and land cover change and the role of ecology policy: a case study from Wuqi in Shaanxi province, China

Speaker: PhD. Daojun Zhang 

Time: 15:00-16:00, May 12, 2017 

Venue: Meeting Room C304, The Building of Economics, Management and Landscape Architecture 

Abstract: Policies can regulate and change human activities, which will affect land use, thereby further affecting regional vegetation coverage. The impact of policies on vegetation cover is constrained by natural factors, as well as social and economic status. In our study, Wuqiin northern Shaanxi is chosen as study area. By the use of remote sensing and GIS spatial analysis techniques, land use and vegetation index data of Wuqi from 1995 to 2011 are obtained together with terrain, meteorological and socio-economic data. Then the vector and grid data are further fused based on the unit of village to establish a spatial database in ArcGIS 10.3. Multiple regression and geographically weighted regression models are applied to calculate the contribution of ecological policy of returning farmland to forest, ban logging and grazing on the vegetation coverage (vegetation index) in the vegetation recovery in the study area under the constraint of resource endowment.
