Spatio-temporal Change Detection of Urban Heat Islands Using Spatial Interpolation
The urban heat island has drawn significant attention in recent years. It has grabbed an unprecedented research interest in the field of remote sensing and geographic information system. This work focuses on spatial interpolation based change detection of heat islands and finding the dynamics of the heat islands. Performance checking is done on derived spatial attribute, land surface temperature (LST). The LSTs of two distinct Landsat ETM+ satellite images (of years 2000 and 2010) are used to verify the accuracy of the proposed algorithm.
