Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) Identification and Analysis Using Satellite Imagery

Authors(2) :-P. B. Tamsekar, Dr. S. B. Thorat

GIS is a Spatial Information Science as well as a interdisciplinary subject. Today GIS can be widely implementing in several sectors because of its capabilities. GIS is gradually more accessible to planners and is now an important tool for urban planning in developed and developing countries alike. The infrastructural development in the urban areas growing faster, and to monitor this development is becoming critical issue in the government administration of different departments. The study of land use and land cover analysis will assist to urban and regional planners as well as all government bodies to develop several and proper policies of development. This will enrich the knowledge of planners regarding the geographical information in an easily understandable format.
