Abstract:

Urbanization refers to the change of rural areas into urban ones. Urban areas are most dynamic in terms of land use changes. The temporal changes can be monitored through satellite data and reflects the development taking place. Pattern recognition techniques like Principal Component Analysis, band ratioing etc. are used to monitor the dynamics. In the present paper, Nagpur city urban sprawl and as well as Nagpur district has been studied using band ratioing techniques. The urban indices like, Normalised Difference Built up Index (NDBI), Index Based Built-Up Index (IBI), Urban Index(UI), Enhanced Built-Up And Bareness Index (EBBI) along with Normalised Difference Vegetation Index(NDVI) has been used to generate a five band composite map. The various combinations are used to delineate the various earth features. This work is unique as some of the features have been delineated with utmost precision.
