Land Use and Land Cover (LU-LC) are vital information required for various planning activities. Infrastructural planning, water resources management, agriculture planning, etc. are important applications of LU-LC information. In today's fast changing face of earth surface due to natural and man-made activities, keeping the LU-LC information updated manually on real time basis is a herculean task. Remote sensing and GIS is very useful technique for acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. The integration of remote sensing with reliable information is most dependable solution in the current scenario. In this study an attempt is made to map NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) and LU-LC for Surat, Gujarat. Satellite imagery of 2nd February 2018 by LANDSAT 8 is used with Arc GIS software of (ESRI) for the purpose of present study. Citation: Sahita Waikhom, V. G. Yadav, Bhumika Kakadiya.
