Abstract—This study reveals to identify the changes of land use/land cover of rural agricultural watershed of Tamil nadu. The relationship between Land Use and Land Cover Changes (LULCC) has identified using IRS IC LISS III and PAN merged data. Further, the preparation of LULC map using Survey of India (SOI) Top sheet for the year 1972contain come up to in multipurpose to know the land use pattern. In the same way, the various LULC image classified which has collected from Institute of Remote Sensing (IRS), scanned and digitized using Arc GIS software. The agricultural practices under agriculture land and cropland has most important crash over the hydro logical processes of the watershed. Thus, the change detection obtained from LULC serve in most favorable solutions for the selection, planning, implementation and monitoring of development schemes to meet the increasing demands of human needs has lead to land management. The Remote Sensing techniques also cost effective to detect the change in LULC over a large area due to natural and human activities. This study shall be very useful for further development planning.
