Abstract: Florida Panhandle region has been experiencing rapid land transformation in the recent decades. To quantify land use and land cover (LULC) changes and other landscape changes in this area, three counties including franklin, liberty and Gulf were taken as case study and an unsupervised classification approach implemented to the Landsat TM images acquired from 1985 to 2005 provided time a time-series of land use and land cover data sets. Land cover change maps derived from post-classifiactioncomparison provided information on spatial distribution and types as well as amount of land cover changes. Results indicated that urban incresed during past 20 year, especially in the second ten years, while forest/woody wetland increased in the first ten year but decreased in the second ten years. These data sets provided basic informationnfor other research such as land management and planning.
