Impact of Land Use Changes in Florida Mega Region: Study of FDOT (D-5) from Year 2007-2015
Abstract: The main objective of the paper is to study the land use change in the District 5 of Florida mega region to see how land use is changing from year 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 & 2015. The study aims to look at the land use change from Agriculture open to development to various land attribute like residential, vacant residential, vacant nonresidential, industrial, institutional, ROW, Agriculture. The land use change study has become an important part of transportation planning initiative. The study uses land use data from university of Florida geo plan center for the year 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 & 2015. The data is obtained as raster files which will be converted to vector for each attribute of land use parcels. The comparative analysis of the data considering year 2009 as base year will be used and statistical analysis. The statistical analysis will be used to see if the land use change is significant in comparison to base year. The similar data set will be created to using the ten miles buffer for the interstate and 5 miles buffer for the state highway. The study will help understand the land use change pattern over the year and predict future change.
