GIS, Remote Sensing, Muti-Scale Urban Analysis, Land Use Change, Urban Growth, Urban Planning
Urban planning was very much a design and engineering exercise with the state as a single stake holder. Mega cities with millions of population, has undergone a series of physical as well as socio-economic changes over the last 60 years. In India, Hyderabad experienced a high rate of urbanization facing structural, environmental, social and economic problems. To provide a holistic perspective on the urban characteristics, an interdisciplinary research approach is used. GISGeographic Information System and Remote Sensing provide the advance techniques and methods for studying urban land development and assist urban planning.
