Environmental Management Through the Assessment of Impact of Urban Growth Through Remote Sensing Techniques

Kavita Sharma and Neerav Sharma

Background and Objective: The field of remote sensing is growing rapidly giving rise to huge potential applications in almost every domain. Management of environment is one of those application-oriented areas which enable the utilization of remote sensing for the betterment of environment. The objective of the study was to attain sustainable development for the future generations to come using the techniques of remote sensing. Materials and Methods: The urban growth has been humongous and with growing population, the resources are getting scarce day by day. This paper utilizes 2 multi-spectral images from Landsat-8 OLI on which remote sensing techniques have been applied for assessing the amount of urban growth and its impact on the environment. Results: The indices estimated by using the remote sensing techniques represent the changes as well as the present day status of the available natural resources in the study area. The NDVI and NDBI give an insight to the urban as well as vegetation landscapes in the area. Conclusion: The paper portrays a strong conclusion regarding the available water resources and the vegetation landscapes in the study area and opens up gates for further researchers to study on remote sensing based sustainable development of environment.
