Recently, the pull of urban center is snowballing, more and more people move to the urban center to earn more money than rural areas especially in developing countries. Consequently, as more people arrive at urban areas, the more pressure will be on the urban environment. Population growth, immigration, and growing environmental problems entail advanced systems for city planners to help sustainable development in these rapidly changing regions. This problem can solve using remote sensing system. The purpose of this paper is to reveal the application of remote sensing technology for urban and use and land cover change detection and disclose certain sequences in detecting urban land use change.
