A study on “Urbanization & Urban Land-use mapping” was carried out using IRS Satellite data of LISS III and LISS IV covering Gandhinagar city. The GIS data like the Transport Network, Urban Habitation, Bridge; Water bodies (like Rivers, canals, etc) were used along with IRS Satellite data. Satellite data was analyzed using Q-GIS as well as ENVI Image Processing Software. Q-GIS was also used to generate various thematic layers like Transport Network, Urban Habitation, Water Bodies, etc. The urban development of Gandhinagar city oer the last 10 years was mapped and monitored using multilayer IRS Satellite data. The urban sprawl during 2001, 2006 & 2012 was mapped and urban growth was monitored to understand the urbanization process.The results of this study indicate that the urban growth in Gandhinagar city has increased to a large extent. The various thematic layers generated also helped to understand the development of transport network & urban growth within the city.
