Abstract: Analysis of urban sprawl is an issue that has been continuously attracting attention in the planning and research community. This paper presents the results of an analysis of the growth of the city of Madurai. Madurai is a city in the south part of Tamilnadu, commonly referred to as Temple City with many historical cultural places being safeguarded. The population of Madurai has grown tremendously and hence the need for more build up area has increased during the past 12 years. In our study, we analyze the development of urbanization in terms of Landuse, Landcover between 2007 and 2019 using GLR and PMR values. The growth of population is directly proportional to the value of the land which is evident by the growth in GLR and PMR values. GLR is the guideline value from the government sector for a land while PMR is the privilege market rate for the same land.
Keywords: Landuse and Landcover changes, GIS, PMR values.
Scope of the Article: Security Technology and Information Assurance.
