Spatial analysis of the effects of urban expansion on agricultural land use in sub-Saharan Africa: A case of Dar es Salaam region in Tanzania


Author(s): Florian Bernard Tairo and Dr. Kuldeep Kumar Saxena

Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the effect of urban expansion on agricultural land use in Dar es Salaam. It involved Classification of Sentinel-2 Satellite Imagery to ascertain whether there was a change in land use/land cover for the time period 2016 until 2019 using maximum likelihood algorithm. The classification accuracy was 62% and Kappa Hat coefficient 0.48 for 2016 and 79.15% and Kappa Coefficient 0.75 for 2019 respectively. A total of 17,428.06 hectares of land were detected to have changed from other classes into Urban and built-up.
