With the rapid increase in population, the urban area of cities grows larger and larger. This expansions increase many
types of problems such as contaminated air and water quality and deforestation. This also has effect on drainage patterns
and soil characteristics of the city. The area of Rawalpindi city has been increased rapidly during last twenty years, and resulted
in increment of urban area. One of the most modern, time saving and accurate technique to observe this urban sprawl is
to use remote sensing satellite images. For current research lands at TM images will be used. By using remote sensing and
geographical information system techniques, land cover and land use, soil conditions and slope will be identified. Real time
data from various departments will be used to verify research results.
