Remote sensing monitoring of rural urbanisation in Jaipur region

Abstract

The important urban growth of Jaipur has an important impact on the rural territories located around the town. To evaluate the geographical situation and the consequences of urbanisation in rural space, the urban sprawl of Jaipur is monitored by remote sensing from 1990’s until 2008. The urban pressure on the rural territories is characterised by different types of land cover changes and transformations of land use: urban dispersion, suburbanisation, industrial change of agricultural use, land use confl icts, etc. The geographic and the spatial analysis, as the evolution of rural territories, are done using Landsat 5, Landsat 7, Spot 3, and Kompsat-2 satellite images. The land use and land cover change analysis permits to identify the territorial transformation of rural space; and it is evolution towards a part of the metropolised area of Jaipur region. The rural areas located around Jaipur are in the process of turning into geographical areas of urban agriculture.
