Land Use Land Cover Dynamics in a Rapidly Urbanising Landscape

  title={Land Use Land Cover Dynamics in a Rapidly Urbanising Landscape},
  author={Bharath Haridas Aithal and S. Vinay},
Landscape transformations in the rapidly urbanizing landscape are the most dynamic process affecting the local ecology and environment. The urbanized landscape do provide to its inhabitants the complex social and economic environment leading to further increase in population. Consequences of the unplanned urbanisation are enhanced pollution levels, lack of adequate infrastructure and basic amenities. This necessitates understanding of spatial patterns of the growth for an effective urban… Expand
Modelling the growth of two rapidly urbanizing Indian cities
Sustainable urban planning requires an understanding of the spatial and temporal patterns of urbanization with insights to the sprawl. Indian cities have been experiencing a rapid urbanizationExpand

The Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is used as a statistical tool for signal analysis in multivariate methods, including optimal representation, data compress and visualizing in the multispectral satellite images for better accuracy in satellite image using Landsat-8 sensors. Expand
Measuring Urban Land Use Change and Sprawl Using Geospatial Techniques: A Study on Purulia Municipality, West Bengal, India
Population growth, desire for more income, transportation facilities and rural to urban migration have increased the rate of urbanisation and complicated its pattern over Purulia district, WestExpand


Insights to urban dynamics through landscape spatial pattern analysis
This research quantifies the urban dynamics using temporal remote sensing data with the help of well-established landscape metrics to indicate that whole landscape is aggregating to a large patch in 2010 as compared to earlier years which was dominated by several small patches. Expand
Spatio-Temporal Pattern of Landscape Dynamics in Shimoga, Tier II City, Karnataka State, India
Urbanisation and associated growth patterns (urban sprawl) are characteristic of spatial temporal land use changes taking place at regional levels. Unplanned urbanization and consequent impacts onExpand
Spatial Metrics based Landscape Structure and Dynamics Assessment for an emerging Indian Megalopolis
Human-induced land use changes are considered the prime agents of the global environmental changes. Urbanisation and associated growth patterns (urban sprawl) are characteristic of spatial temporalExpand
Spatio-temporal dynamics and evolution of land use change and landscape pattern in response to rapid urbanization
Abstract Analyzing spatio-temporal characteristics of land use change is essential for understanding and assessing ecological consequence of urbanization. More importantly, such analysis can provideExpand

Investigation of changes in landscape structure and the ecological consequences of urbanization in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area using spatial indices, change analysis, and geospatial modeling revealed urban area expanded 82% from 1975 to 2006, mainly by displacing forest and agricultural lands by in-filling gaps within the urban area or near its periphery. Expand
Characterizing urban sprawl using multi-stage remote sensing images and landscape metrics
Land consumption indices (LCI) were devised to relate the remotely sensed built-up growth to changes in housing and commercial constructions as major driving factors, providing an effective measure to compare and characterize urban sprawl across jurisdictional boundaries and time periods. Expand
Geoinformatics for Urbanisation and Urban Sprawl Pattern Analysis
Urbanisation is the increase in the population of cities in proportion to the region's rural population. Urbanisation in India is very rapid with urban population growing at around 2.3 percent perExpand
Urbanization in India - Spatiotemporal analysis using remote sensing data
The study aims to detect similarities and differences in spatial growth in the large Indian urban agglomerations, and paints a characteristic picture of spatial pattern, gradients and landscape metrics, and thus illustrate spatial growth and future modelling of urban development in India. Expand
The role of spatial metrics in the analysis and modeling of urban land use change
A framework combining remote sensing and spatial metrics aimed at improving the analysis and modeling of urban growth and land use change and helps to develop alternative conceptions of urban spatial structure and change is explored. Expand
Urban sprawl: metrics, dynamics and modelling using GIS
Urban sprawl refers to the extent of urbanisation, which is a global phenomenon mainly driven by population growth and large scale migration. In developing countries like India, where the populationExpand
