The rapid urbanization is the matter of grave concern in contemporary time because it leads to urban sprawl. The numbers of changes have come in urban areas such as development of industry, service sector, employment and educational services. These changes have led to job opportunity and better way of life in urban areas. Consequently, the individuals are migrating from rural areas to urban areas and they are creating many problems in urban areas such as uncontrolled population, inner city neighbourhood, and heterogeneous environment. Social scientists, Geographers & Urban planners identify the pattern of urban sprawl, recognition of magnitude and direction of changing sprawl and its effect on land use/land cover change so they develop a plan to provide basic amenities such as water, sanitation, electricity, etc. Lucknow is also experienced a high rate of urbanization facing the problems of social, infrastructural, industrial and environmental. The pattern of urban sprawl, its magnitude and effects on Land use/Land cover (LULC) will be identified with the help of temporal data of primary and secondary (satellite images & ancillary data) and also field survey & ground truth. The collected data will be analyzed by using Remote Sensing & Geographical information system (GIS) techniques and statistical software. The study will provide a methodology for sustainable planning of land use and urban growth using various techniques. Remote Sensing & GIS and satellite images will be used in this study to provide spatial inputs and model for describing growth. This is useful for the urban planning in Developing Countries where land use data is not available regularly. GIS based study will help a lot for monitoring urban sprawl compared to Conventional technique.
