Urbanization is the dynamic process of worldwide phenomenon. Urban growth is affected by human interference and natural phenomena such as agricultural demand and trade. These causes are influenced by population growth, government policy and economic development. Remote sensing and geographical information system (GIS) are very valuable and advance technology is providing current land use information. The mostly changes of land use in these areas can be described as other type of land use has been converted into urban land. The present study highlights significance of remote sensing in the change detection of urban land use changes for the deferent times periods of (1991 to 2011) using the satellite imagery. Satellite imageries Landsat-5 Tm (1991), Landsat-5 Tm (2001) and IRS P6 LISS4 data were using to map the urban land use for 1991 to 2011. Remote sensing imagery is the most important data resources of GIS. Global Position System also uses for capture the major features identification in the corporation area. Present work has carried out with the help of computer based GIS and Image processing software. The present study has shown that remote sensing techniques have tremendous potential for mapping and monitoring of land use. There is significant decrease of agriculture area and increase in settlement area from year 1991 to year 2011. The rapid urban growth has been converted most of the agricultural land into built-up land.
