The purpose of this study is to evaluate the hydrological impact due to temporal land cover changes by gradual urbanization of a watershed. WMS HEC-1 was adopted, and DEM with 200m resolution and hydrologic soil group from 1:50,000 soil map were prepared. Land covers of 1986, 1990, 1994 and 1999 Landsat TM images were classified by maximum likelihood method. By applying the model, watershed average CN value was affected in the order of paddy, forest and urban/residential, respectively.
