This study presents a methodology that integrates the use of remote sensing, geographical information systems (GIS) and water-quality modeling.</p> <p>Archived aerial photography proved to be a valuable source of historical land use data. GIS technology was used to compile and analyze spatial data. A comprehensive watershed model was used to link the effects of land use change to water quality.</p> <p> The Cub Run watershed study area, located in northern Virginia experienced significant land use change between 1979 and 1988.
