Abstract

Rapid urbanization and expansion of cities due to population growth and industrialization have a significant effect on the environmental surroundings and land use/land cover. Remote sensing data obtained from Landsat satellite are used to study land use land cover changes (LULC) happening in Tirupur city and neighbourhood. In the present work,LULC maps were generated using Landsat data for the years 2001 and 2018 and the changes have been evaluated. The study reveals that there is maximum increase in built-up area and decrease in fallow lands between 2001 and 2018 with a slight change in crop land, waste land and scrub land. This change is attributed to the expansion of Tirupur city due to industrialization..
