The land surface temperature and land-use / land cover for the urban portion of Bilaspur [CG] has been studied through Remote Sensing and GIS. The changing pattern of land-use /land cover in between years 2012 and 2017 has been documentated along-with land surface temperature through Landsat MSS and THERMAL band. The eight types of land-use /landcover features namely: Agricultural, Built-up, Mixed Built up, industrial, Open land, River-rine, Tree clad/sparse vegetation and Surface water bodies have been identified and monitored. The negative [minus] and positive [plus] changes in land-use/ land cover in relation to land surface temperature have been quantified as area increased and decreased respectively. The retrieval of land surface temperature has revealed the urban growth settlement and its adverse impact on conservation of local land, vegetation and water resources. The land surface temperature for all eight land-use /land cover have been obtained in the incremental order of 5-7 ? C during the 15 years [in between 2002-2017] for 30.50 Sq. Km geographic area for the urban portion of Bilaspur city.
