Abstract: The importance of mapping of land use and land cover is highlighted in this paper. The paper discusses image classification as one way of mapping land use and land cover. Image classification is the process of sorting all the pixels into in an image into a finite number of individual classes .Image classification is further classified into supervised and unsupervised classification. This paper also highlights the numerous ways for image classification.
Keywords: Image Classification, Mapping, Supervised, Unsupervised.
