Abstract

Land use is the analysis of land according to its use in agricultural, forestry, industrial, recreational, and residential areas. The Global Land use has significantly changed in the past decades. Historically the driving forces are vital role for Land use change and population growth although there are several interacting factors involved. Urban expansion and land use/land cover change of Man River basin within the last 11 years is observed in the present study. The change was based on satellite imagery of LISS-III (2003) and LISS-III (2014), toposheet at a scale of 1:50000 and ground truth. This study mainly concentrated the Land use / Land cover change for the two time periods 2003 and 2014.  The Land use/Land cover map has been prepared by using ArcGIS 10. Visual Image Interpretation technique has been adopted for identifying the features of Land use/Land cover. The result revealed that agricultural land and forest lands have been converted into built-up land. Therefore forest land has been declined tremendously. Thus it is necessary to formulate the measures for sustainable Land use/Land cover development.
