Abstract: Urban growth processes, usually accompanied by increased population also sees cities growing rapidly in terms of physical dimension leading to rapid expansion and changes in land characteristics of the area concerned. This study examined land-use changes of states in the south-east, Nigeria. Satellite imageries of the study area for 1986, 2006 and 2018 were sourced from US Geological Survey and NASRDA (March, 2019). Landsat Thematic Mapper imagery constitutes the base data layer from which the land use and land cover (built-up and non-built up) maps were derived. A total of 270 data points were obtained from the ground truth field survey from which 195 ground truth points were used for accuracy assessment through the use of Global Positioning System (GPS).
