IIT Bombay study: Mumbai’s urban footprint is growing faster than city’s population

Mumbai | India

The researchers, Dr Priya Mendiratta and Professor Shirish Gedam, studied the spread of built-up area, densely covered by buildings, using archived Landsat images from 1972 to 2011. In the study, the researchers show how the digital interpretation of archived images and satellite data could provide a base plan to predict the “growth directions” in a metropolitan area.
