This study focus on detect and evaluate the development of circular irrigation in this study period. The circular irrigation fields are detected by using the image segmentation techniques from computer vision library is Hough transform and watershed segmentation. It also elaborates the use of multi – temporal TimeScan product with 6 spectral indices including the features of temporal statistics. The study was carried out to assess the development of circular irrigation in South Africa as well as impact of climate changes in change of practicing different irrigation methods to centre – pivot systems, and also the location, distribution and expansion of this irrigation system in available water source.”
