Urban land cover / land use change across Gauteng is beautifully portrayed in this month’s map of the month. The land cover/use layers are based on an interpretation of Landsat TM and ETM+ satellite imagery from 1991 and 2009, undertaken as part of Brian Mubiwa’s PhD research at the University of Johannesburg. Urban growth and suburban sprawl are clearly evident with the percentage of urban (built-up) land cover in Gauteng increasing from 12.6% in 1991 to 18.4% in 2009.
