GIS, Remote Sensing, Land Use Change, Urban Growth, Multi-Scale Urban Analysis.
India experienced a high rate of urbanization during the last five decades leading to concentration of population in the main cities. One of the main city is Hyderabad in India is a sprawling metropolis and an incipient megacity facing structural, environmental, social and economic problems. The objective of this study is to investigate the current pattern of land use to monitor the trends of urban growth in Hyderabad between 1997, 2007 and 2013 using satellite images and GIS. Second object is to enable a highly detailed structural characteristics of specific neighborhoods’, thus a multi-scale analysis of the urban area by remote sensing provides up-todate data of the urban morphology. This enables a value-added and more holistic view to understand urban workflows and their dependencies.
