Remote Sensing and the Geographical Information Systems with their advantages of spatial, spectral and temporal availability and manipulation of data.  In this study, the land cover changes of Adıyaman have been investigated between 1988 and 2018. This study analyses land-use/land-cover (LULC) changes in Adıyaman Province, Turkey.  Landsat satellite images, which provide constant retrospective data, were used in our study to determine temporal and spatial change. The image classified with the “ISODATA method” consisted of 180 classes at first step. According to the findings Adıyaman city, rapidly growing like the other cities of Turkey, while covering an area of 500 km² in 1988, expanded to an area of 4600 km² in 2018.

In addition to all these, intensity of human activity resulting from increased population boosted pressure on the land. Also, improper use of land widens areas susceptible to erosion. Thus, erosion risk mapping of Nurdağı District is made up in order to bring to light the erosion risk in relation with settlement, Land Use Capability Classes (LUCC) and agriculture or planning studies in Nurdağı District. The risk map was created by using the Multi-criteria Decision-making Model and produced with GIS. In order to make up the map, certain parameters affecting erosion were used such as slope, landuse and intensity of vegetation. According to the analysis carried out to find out areas under high risk of erosion, 28 % of the study area was determined. In this context, local administrators should consider, during land use planning, these sites where the erosion risk is high-very high.
