Abstract

The knowledge of land use/land cover changes is very important in understanding natural resources, their utilization, conservation, and management. Though urban growth is seen to be a worldwide phenomenon, in countries like India the rate of urbanization is very fast. India possessed a number of fast-growing cities. This paper presents the land use/land cover changes that have taken place in Velachery, from 2008 to 2018. To classify the urban land use and land cover supervised classification method has been employed. The GIS is used to prepare the different layers belonging to various land uses identified from remotely sensed data. The land use and land cover classification maps were prepared through Remote sensing and GIS technology. Nowadays in the analysis of temporal data at the district and city level, Remote sensing and Geographical Information System have gained great importance as vital tools in the analysis process. The results indicate that there was a significant increase in the built-up land decrease in the vegetation.
