Abstract

The city of Tangier, the ultimate economic hub and tourist destination, has experienced in recent decades various changes and dynamics of land use including the establishment of industrial and tourism units and the redevelopment of the port of the city port of pleasure.

A diachronic remote sensing study was carried out on multispectral Spot images of 1995 and 2005 and on a Sentinel2 image of 2018. It aims to follow the urban sprawl at the scale of the agglomeration of Tangier and more particularly on coastal municipalities of the city to measure the impact of anthropogenic pressure and the artificialization of coastal areas on the stability of the coastline and the exposure to the risks of erosion and marine submersion.

For each of the dates, multispectral indices (NDVI, MNDWI, …) were gathered in a decision tree for a hierarchical classification by association of spectral bands at thresholds deduced empirically from their histograms. The built class thus extracted shows that littoralization has tripled since 1995 until 2018.
