Determination and Comparison of the Land Cover Types in the Aegean Region According to Globalcover 2021 and Corine 2018 Data

Landforms in the Aegean Region vary in the west-east and north-south directions at short distances. The difference in morphological structure has diversified the land cover and revealed different land use types. Global, regional and local factors affecting land cover have also shown variability in the Aegean Region. Physical factors (geology, geomorphology, climate, hydrography, hydrography, soil properties and vegetation cover) are effective on land cover distribution and ecological factors, socio-economic characteristics and anthropogenic variables of human origin are also effective on land cover distribution. In this study, the land cover distribution characteristics in the Aegean Region were determined by using the WorldCover satellite data produced by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the 2018 CORINE data prepared by the European Environment Agency (EEA), and a comparison was made in two different land cover types prepared from separate databases. Since the WolrdCover data was prepared from the Sentinental-2 satellite image with a resolution of 10 metres, it was preferred in terms of detailing the distribution of land cover. This study was prepared to determine and comparatively analyse the land cover relationship based on satellite images produced from different databases. Factors affecting land cover types were tried to be explained. As a result of the analyses, it was observed that the numerical results of two different data used in determining the land cover types of the Aegean Region were not harmonised on the basis of region and provinces. The different resolution of the two data and the difference in the number of land cover types determined caused the spatial distribution of the land cover in the numerical outputs and maps to differ. Geomorphology, climate, hydrography and population characteristics, especially geomorphology, have been effective in the distribution of land cover types in the region.

Fiziki faktrlerin (jeoloji, jeomorfoloji, iklim, hidrografya, toprak zellikleri ve bitki rts) etkili olduu arazi rts dalm zerinde ekolojik faktrler, sosyo ekonomik zellikler ve insan kkenli antropojenik deikenler de etkili olmaktadr. almada Ege Blgesinde, Avrupa Uzay Ajans tarafndan (ESA) retilen WorldCover uydu verisi ve Avrupa evre Ajans tarafndan hazrlanan 2018 CORINE verileri kullanlarak blgedeki arazi rts dal zellikleri tespit edilmi, ayr veri tabanndan hazrlanan iki farkl arazi rts tiplerinde karlatrma yaplmtr. WorldCover verisi 10 metre znrlkteki Sentinental-2 uydu grntsnden hazrland iin arazi rtsnn dalmn detaylandrmas bakmndan tercih edilmitir. Bu alma farkl veri tabanndan retilen uydu grntlerine bal arazi rts ilikisinin belirlenmesi ve karlatrmal analizinin yaplmas amacyla hazrlanmtr. Arazi rts tiplerini etkileyen faktrler aklanmaya allmtr. Analizler sonucunda Ege Blgesi arazi rts trlerinin tespit edilmesinde kullanlan farkl iki verinin saysal sonularnn blge ve iller baznda uyum salamad gzlemlenmitir. ki verinin de farkl znrlkte olmas ve belirlenen arazi rts tr saylarnn farkllk gstermesi saysal ktlarn ve haritalardaki arazi rtsnn alansal dallarnn da farkllamasna neden olmutur. Blgede arazi rts tiplerinin dalnda Jeomorfoloji bata olmak zere, iklim zellikleri, hidrografya ve nfus zellikleri etkili olmutur.
