I have 4 series times shapefiles (my shapefiles are Polygons), my shapefiles are about urban(Urban land uses include: Agriculture,Built Up,Bare Land,Water), I want extraction change detection urban in 4 time series(years: 1990-2000-2006-2010).

How can I do change detection between 4 shapefiles in R?

Which book can i find more information about Change Detection spatial in R?

  • I don't recommend you R to perform a change detection analysis over polygons. Use QGIS or ArcGIS for that. Other option is convert polygons to raster and perform change detection analysis, but R sometimes fail intersecting polygons – aldo_tapia Jan 20 '17 at 12:48
