Abstract

Use of High Resolution temporal satellite imageries and Geographical Information System
(GIS) provide us present and past status of extensions and Landuse change in oukskirts of
urban centres. The present paper is an attempt to analyze the temporal urban growth and
landuse change of Aligarh city using Survey of India Topographical Map surveyed in 1971
and IKONOS satellite data of various time periods from 2004, 2009 and 2014. The result
shows that in 1971 the urban built-up land of the city based on SOI Topographical Map was
2224.6555 hectare, based on interpretation of IKONOS satellite imagery of 2004, 2009 and
2014 , the urban built-up area of the city is 4724.7614 hectare in 2004, 5872.6774 hectare in
2009 and 7059.8875 hectare in 2014 respectively. This has increased to 2500.1059 hectare in a
period of 33 years from 1971 to 2004 and in the period from 2004-2009 and 2009-2014 it has
increased by 1148 hectare and 1187.211 hectare respectively. Agricultural land,
Orchard/Plantations and water bodies to built-up (urban) has been calculated in GIS and it
has been observed that there is a tremendous increase in the built-up urban area. The loss of
prime arable land, orchard/plantation and water bodies has been converted in to built-up
urban land. The digital database created for urban growth and landuse change of Aligarh
city, Uttar Pradesh, India using multi-date data in Arc-GIS software would be very useful for
urban development authorities, planners, decision makers for better landuse planning and
management for proposed landuse programmes.
