Abstract:
Abstract: This research paper addresses the issue of urban sprawl along the Major Roads in the context of Jodhpur city. Subsequently, an attempt has been made to understand the process of new settlement and industrial growth over the time. Remote sensing and GIS technology pay a significant role in studies of urban growth. Satellite Data of Landsat, IRS-P6 , SOI toposheets and ground truth data were used for preparation of GIS based outputs maps of the Jodhpur city and surrounding areas. Satellite images were classified for finding different changes using urban sprawl measurement along the major periphery road of the city. The growth of the Jodhpur city is along the major highway like Pal road, Pali road, Jaipur Road, Nagore Road and Chopasni Road. City is not developing in concentric manner but it is spreading linearly in leapfrog pattern and in the direction which offers better opportunities in terms of industrial location and residential areas. Keywords: GIS, Urban growth, Road Network, Landsat.
