Abstract—Firstly, two sets of land cover map in China at scale of 1 to 250000 in 1980s and 2005 were produced based on Landsat TM data, CBERS data, MODIS vegetation index products as well as other auxiliary data. Secondly, changes of land cover between the two periods were detected and analyzed with Henan province of central China as a study case. And then changes of ecosystem services value in the province were further analyzed. The following conclusions were drawn: (a) during the period of twenty years from 1980s to 2005, the area of all kinds of land cover has changed. The types of land cover, area of which reduced obviously, included desert, bare soil, swamps and meadows. The area of them was reduced by 80.17%, 82.81%, 73.61% and 62.62% respectively. By contrast, area of urban settlement increased most with an increasing rate of 103.77%; (b) In the 20 years, the total value of ecosystem services in the province decreased 2.256 billion yuan. The decreasing rate was 1.24%.
