Sandeep Kumar  | Ashok Beniwal 
Abstract: Land Resource mapping plays a vital role in resource management. It assists in the planning for future land use, particularly agriculture, because it assesses the land resource and its potential for sustainable agricultural production. Land resource mapping can serve many purposes, including business planning and research. However the major traditional uses, which are still important today, are to help plan new developments (like agriculture, forestry, urban, recreation) and to identify management, conservation or degradation issues. The present study aims to investigate the monitoring of resource and temporal utilization using multi-temporal IRS P6 AWiFS satellite data (2007- 2009-10) of Baragudha block of Sirsa district and to identify the hot spots of land use changes pertaining to various categories. At the same time, land use and land cover transfer matrixes are used to assess the dynamic change trends for different land cover types. Agriculture land class covered 519.97 sq. km area in 2007 & 507.73 sq. km area in 2009-10 that was 96.24 percentage of the study area in 2007 and 93.98 percentage of the study area in 2009-10.
