To achieve this, regular monitoring of development, high resolutions of spatial images and the development of change detection algorithms have made remote sensing a viable option for mapping out urban land uses and land cover change (Odindi and Mhangara 2012; Herold et al. 2002). Moreover, remote sensing has the added advantage of capturing detailed information on the rates and extent of urbanisation while offering up-to-date and cost-effective methods for generating information to support the monitoring of urban management systems (Jensen and Cowen 1999).
