Abstract


This study aims to present the benefits of a new methodology based on geographic information systems and remote sensing techniques for the identification and classification of Mediterranean landscapes. The approach has been applied to a coastal region of South East Tunisia: the Zarzis region. It is based on the combination of different satellite Landsat-8 image processing, namely supervised and unsupervised classifications and calculation of radiometric indices. Thematic maps and validation of results by Google Earth images have permitted, in a second step, to offer a touristic destination and geolocation of few stations encompassing representative of the area landscapes. This study presents an innovative methodological approach based on remote sensing and GIS to map the types of landscapes in Zarzis region. This approach may be useful in landscaping projects and as an efficient tool to develop a touristic destination by highlighting each type of landscape.

Author Keywords: GIS, remote sensing, indices, landscape, touristic destination.
