India's urban population has grown tremendously in the last four decades from 79 million in 1961 to 285 million in 2001. This fast rate of increase in urban population is mainly due to large scale migration of people from rural and smaller towns to bigger cities in search of better employment opportunities and good life style. This rapid population pressure(More)
This paper reviews how remotely sensed data have been used to understand the impact of urbanization on global environmental change. We describe how these studies can support the policy and science communities’ increasing need for detailed and up-to-date information on the multiple dimensions of cities, including their social, biological, physical, and(More)
Urban remote sensing predominantly focuses on positive growth patterns. Urban planning mainly concentrates on the investigation of cities as an administrative unit. In this paper the phenomenon of a negative urban growth is investigated within an urban region for two selected areas: one selected test area is the gradient from inner urban districts to(More)
Addressing the question ‘Is the world urbanizing in a context of poverty?’ has been so far based on limited information. There is only poor scientific and operational knowledge of this process. Urban growth & land consumption patterns are poorly understood (i.e. coastal cities are growing faster; they are disproportionately urban and(More)
This paper empirically examines an integrated study of urbanization in Kuala Lumpur City, Malaysia, by using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing. The study explores a multi buffer ring method to investigate the spatial and temporal dynamics of urban growth between 1989 - 2014. We classified Landsat images from 1989, 2001 and 2014 with(More)
Land cover and land use changes associated with urbanization are important drivers of local geological, hydrological, ecological, and climatic change. Quantification and monitoring of these changes in 100 global urban centres are part of the mission of the ASTER instrument on board the NASA Terra satellite, and comprise the fundamental research objective of(More)

The remits of regional planning and environmental monitoring are growing steadily. Planning data and status information need to made available in ever more up-to-date form and with high spatial resolution. Given the constraints on public funding, this demand for data can only be met future using new forms of satellite sensor in outer space. The Indian IRS1C(More)
This research work intends to explore the spatial analytical methods to identify both general trends and more subtle patterns of urban growth. In Kuala Lumpur, Malian and Singapore, where urban area have experienced an unprecedented rate of growth over the last 30 year. In this uncontrolled situation, city planners lack tools to measure, monitor and(More)
The rapid change of running modifications and processes simultaneously require and enable the execution of a landscape monitoring. With latest methods and geo-information data an important contribution can be made in particular to monitor and evaluate developments being carried out. The landscape monitoring dedicates itself to the check and the prognosis of(More)
