The investigation of urbanization has revealed enthusiasm from a large number of specialists. This is a multidisciplinary range of the subject which conjures the enthusiasm from environmentalists to urban organizers & geographers, managers, structural engineers, sociologists, strategy creators and lastly the normal man. This is a result of the huge number of exercises and procedures that occur in the urban environments consistently. Urban environments are the result of the inherent idea of people as social creatures to live respectively. The ordinary overviews become futile for chalking out future administration procedures in light of the fact that when information gets accessible, it never again speaks to the ground reality completely. The protection systems request close to exact and approach ongoing spatial information. The remote sensing strategy has risen as a useful asset to guide and screen the regular assets particularly in out of reach and uneven territories and that too financially, precisely and inside a limited capacity to focus time. The examination territory speaks to the division Nishat region which is monetarily developing quick by changing to settlements and developed land for as far back as scarcely any decades. Analysis of the Landsat pictures of the year 2004, 2007, 2014, 2019 were used to distinguish the scale of changes in both land use as well as land cover in the previous multi decade. The examination uncovers increase of 0.0479km² increment in the settlement over the previous decade and the territory is getting disturbed as far as biological well being.

Keywords : Change detection, Land-use/Land-cover, Geospatial analysis, Urban Sprawl.
