URBAN SPRAWL MAPPING AND LAND USE CHANGE ANALYSIS USING REMOTE SENSING AND GIS
Abstarct: 
This project examines the use of Remote Sensing and GIS in mapping of urban sprawl (1930-2005) and landuse /landcover change detection (A case study of Bhubaneswar, 2000-2005). So as to detect changes that has been taken place in this status between these periods. Subsequently, an attempt was made at projecting the observed urban built-up and population between 1930 – 2005. It is also observed that changes by 2031 may likely follow the trend in 1930 to 2005.

Key Words: Remote Sensing, Geographical Information System (GIS), Urban Sprawl, Land Use Change Detection, Prediction of Population and Urban area growth
