Abstract -
Wetlands are most important and valuable ecosystem for maintaining biodiversity on the planet. In present scenario wetlands are vulnerable to climate change and land conversion activities like agriculture and urbanization. Due to their important fine temporal scale monitoring of sensitive wetlands are required. For this purpose few tools are specified to monitor the wetland at landscape scale. To understand better wetland detection technique a detailed survey on different wetland detection methodology using satellite imagery is performed. Its aim to identify the best techniques to detect wetland changes in present scenario so that appropriate changes on studied techniques according to needs in different wetland areas analysis can be suggested.
