Mapping change in tree canopy cover can give useful insight into topics like development of human activity and the health of a forest. In this study, remote sensing data is used to analyze tree canopy change over time at Red River Gorge in mid-Kentucky. The study results show the tree canopy change in both residential and non-residential areas in the study area. The study results can help forest managers and local governments to have a better understanding about the health of the forest and to better prepare for the process of forest management.
