The 1st International Conference on Urbanization and Global Environmental Change (UGEC) in close cooperation with the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) and the International Human Dimensions Programme (IHDP) recently stressed the importance of dynamic and complex interactions between urban land use land cover change and global environmental change. Despite significant advances in geographic information science (GIS) and technology however, effectively categorizing digital remote sensing data into detailed urban land categories remains a challenge. To identify urban land-use and land-cover classes effectively, spatial arrangements of neighborhood features and objects in different directions at infinite scales are needed. New developments in wavelet transform could open up many opportunities for characterizing spatial arrangements of these complex features.
