Utilisation de la télédétection et des systèmes d'information géographique pour l'évaluation de la dynamique du paysage : cas d'une zone boisée de la province de Benslimane (Maroc occidental)

Abstract : The Benslimane province lies between the two urban areas of Morocco (Rabat and Casablanca) and accommodates a wooded lanscape in its middle that has a considerable ecological and socio-économic value. Using a vegetation cover map from 1955 and two multispectral Landsat images from 1987 and 2001, combined with field observations, we were able to assess the spatial and temporal dynamic of this landscape over 47 years through a combination of remote sensing and geographic information systems. The results highlighit a change in the environment that as evolved from a single-species Cork oak forest landscape to a multi-species forest landscape with the advent of Pine and Eucalyptus afforestation, wine-growing areas, mining areras (quarries) and urban development. Evaluation of the changes that have occured in the forest landscape is discussed with a view to providing relevant material for sustainably managing and preserving it..
