Abstract: Land is one of the vital natural resources and all the developmental activities are based on it. The migration of people from rural areas to urban is increases and population is widely changed day to day so, the land use/ land cover are also changed. In recent decades “land use” concept has evolved and it is now considered as the socioeconomic function of land. The representation of land use and land use change assessment through remote sensing still remains one of the major challenges for the remote sensing scientific community. In this study mainly we focus on land use changes in the government lands of Amadalavalasa mandal, Srikakulam district. We present a methodological approach based on multi temporal satellite data and cadastral data to assess government land use changes. IRSP6 & R2-LISS IV sensor with 5.8 meter high spatial resolution data 2012 and 2018 has been used and applied remote sensing techniques to find out the land use changes in government lands over 6 years. For this analysis software GIS (Geospatial Information System) and ERDAS (Earth Resource Data Analysis System) are used. The encroachment changes in the government land parcels are displayed by the delta cue process then the changes are visually interpreted. Therefore, the land use changes over the government land parcels of Amadalavalasa mandal, Srikakulam district was prepared.
