Vallarpadam and Mulavukad islands cover large paddy fields and have been transmuted to urban lands to establish the human settlement. During past decades, the conversion took place here because of the lack of profit from the Paddy cultivation, converting these lands into other suitable forms. The changes in the LULC of this area was estimated using Remote Sensing and GIS technique. Multi-temporal satellite data for 2000, 2010 and 2020 were used for the image classification. The change detection analysis showed that substantial changes occurred during the study period, with an increase of urban land showing an expeditious trend of urbanization.
