Most of the cities have been exposed by physical growth. This could be explained by
high population groyth as well as rural – urban migration. This in turn, resulted the in
the development of cities upon unsuitable lands.
This study deals with the determination of Andimeshk urban physical
development using T. M (1987), (ETM (2002), and LISS PAN (2003) projection
The Methodology of this study is as follows:
At first urban land use maps were drawn. The urban physical development rates were
computed based on comparsion between the maps. In the next step, taking into
considration the relevant factors responsible for urban physical development potential,
distance layers pertaining to distance of the city from C.BD, from main routes, from
west ravine were determined and scaled. This is followed by calssification of land into
10 brackets. The final aereage devoted to future development were computed by 1408.
it is suggested that urban physical development of Andimeshk were confined to just
vertical development due to preservation of agricultural lands of the city.
