Abstract

The purpose of this research is to analyze the land use change around the coastal zone at Fongafale island in Tuvalu by using map information, aerial photograph and satellite image. Now, it was reported that the Global warming is advanced by heat-trapping gas. And, it has misgivings about coastal erosion along with the sea-level rise. Then, to make the prior information used to settle on the adjustment plan, it advanced the analysis of the geographic information in this research.According to the examination, it has understood that the vegetation area on the Fongafale island decreases for the long term. And, it has understood that the vegetation of the lagoon coastal zone decreases by development in recent years.
