Exception of 2008, the increased farmland trajectories are highlighted, representing the old farmland since 1994 and the expansions since the other study periods. The trajectories are established without residents and main roads. 2 lists the calculated areas of farmland trajectories. 3 Impacts of Water Supply on Farmland Changes Because we focus on the impacts of water resource on farmland change, the selected class-level metrics are adopted to represent the changes of farmland spatial distributions caused by water supply.
