Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) techniques provide effective tools for analyzing the land use dynamics of the region as well as for monitoring, mapping and management of natural resources. Some recent studies have shown the use of RS and GIS in land use change detection. Micro-watershed study helps in identifying the areas causing problems and ultimately becomes a step towards planning to mitigate the problems. The present paper aims at mapping of land use/land cover for the years (1995, 2003 and 2012) and quantifying the changes in land use.
