AbstractUrban land use change is a major issue globally. Land cover is a cover that covers any surface and the changes described include urban area land, water body, residential, forest land wasteland, agriculture, and recreation etc. The development of the built-up area separates the city limits.' (PA Khadke & RU Kharat 2017) Land use change plays a major role in the developmental activity of a developing country. Due to the rapid development of urbanization and the dramatically increasing population, fertile agricultural land has been converted into built-up area in relation to the need for housing and the need for infrastructure. The extent of open space and surface water bodies have also been encroached upon. Land use is derived from the human use of land and can be mainly classified into residential, agricultural, commercial use, industrial, etc. Land use and land cover changes are caused by socio-economic and natural factors. The increase in population as well as migration of people from rural to urban is the most important reason for land use change. (P. Sangardas, S. Ishwari, 2019). In the presented research paper, the study and analysis of land use change of Jodhpur city and its impact on economy and environment is to be done.
