Structural analysis of land use pattern in Delhi, India

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The objective of this research is to examine the structural pattern of land use and land cover of Delhi India in concentric rings from the urban center, which I identified as the India Gate. The economic bid rent model suggests that the pattern of urbanization will follow a systematic pattern from the urban center related to transportation costs. Using information derived from ASTER data using an expert system approach, I created 13 different land use and land cover categories. The total area of each category was calculated in each of the concentric rings. Findings suggest that the Yamuna River has impeded growth on the eastern side of the river.
