Abstract: Development is a testimony for the growth of human species, which could only be attained by pioneering the ability for the effective usage of natural resources, of once country. Among the natural resources the land, whose use changes with time and space, stakes a major share. But unfortunately, in the prodigious constraint of agriculture need for humans only a less land is available for the urbanization. For nadir usage of land, a better understanding is necessary which could only attain through scientific approach, which would be provided by the Remote sensing and Geographic Information system(GIS). The present study confines to the change detection and Land resources available at Amaravati the capital city of an Indian state i.e., Andhra Pradesh from 2014 – 2018, which is been planned to build on the southern banks of the Krishna river in Guntur district, by using of Remote Sensing and GIS mapping. To eliminate or promote a process of land management, a postulated urbanization happened in the area within the specific time is known by performing change detection analysis. The LU/LC is done by using Combined classification technique and the Change detection Analysis, is done by using “Landsat 8 Images of 20 May 2014 and 31 May 2018”. And this helped to study the growth of urbanization and for preparing various thematic maps i.e., Transportation Map, Slope Map, Soil Map etc., and data from various organizations and the Survey of India(SOI) toposheets were also used. Which obliging to get a brief on Land Resources and would help the government organizations in making proper land management policies for the environmentally friendly urbanization.
