Haphazard and unplanned urban growth is directly related to population growth,industrial development,high buiding densties,and lack of control on land uses,minimal open space,deteriorating environment and the poor quality of life of the urbanites .Further increasing population, conflicting land use patterns, traffic congestion,resources constraint,unchecked migration of people from villages also contribute to the chaotic condition of the cities of today.
Thus, for proper management of urban areas the planners and administrators require vital information such as urban sprawl,urban land use,urban demography,environment, transportation, housing, water supply and sanitation, soild waste and service facilities.
The objective of this project is to prepare topographical and urban land use maps at large scale(1:5,000)of Hassan town and environs by adopting remote sensting techniques.
