Land use and land cover change is the most important topic of global climate change. GIS and RS provide effective technical methods for land use change research. In this paper, the authors used multi-temporal Landsat remote sensing images of Wuhan city, combined with GIS technology, analyzed the characteristics of land area change, information of land types conversion, land spatio-temporal changing model etc. According to the general characteristics and evolution pattern of land use change, they revealed the main tendency of land evolvement in the rapid urbanization and explored urban land use structure evolution model from 1991 to 2005.
