Remote sensing (RS) is a very reliable and effective way to monitor the environment and landscape changes. In today’s world topographic maps are very important in science, research, planning and management. It is quite possible to detect the changes based on RS data which is obtained at two different times. In this paper, we propose an optimal technique that handles problems like urban green space destruction and detection of crop stress assessment. Firstly, the optimal preprocessing is performed on the given RS dataset, for image enhancement using geometric correction and image registration. Secondly, we propose the improved cat swarm optimization algorithm to optimize the greenery region with the help of vegetation index parameters like Normalized Difference Built-up Index (NDBI) & Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). Thirdly, we use Conditional Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to reduce dimension of a response matrix & retain the dominant information to identify key vegetation indices and the classification of crops. Then, an optimal decision maker-based post classification method is introduced to differentiate area changes based on the overlay of two or more classified images. From the simulation results we observed and conclude that the performance of proposed crop classification, crop stress and yield assessments performed very effective compared to existing methods in terms of F-Measure, recall, precision & accuracy.
