In this study the analysis of Saharanpur region has been done at Roorkee University for the development and growth of the region, using Landsat Imagery of November, 1972 (Bands 5 and 7) after enlarging it to a Scale of 1:250,000. Land utilization map (by visual interpretaion) was prepared, on the base map obtained from 250,000 toposheet, interpreting three main element of the image i.e. tone, texture and pattern-Sample verification of the landuses obtained was done by the interpretation of 1:10,000 scale photos for plains and 1:60,000 scale photographs for hilly area and found quite reasonable. Some of the information about population and the distribution of population according to the sizes of the settlements are found by the census report. The road work information is obtained from the toposheet and aerial photographs. After getting this information, hierarchy of settlements, land utilizaton onward settlement, population of the settlements, road conncetions between settlements and the size of the settlements are determined. The strategy for development of Growth centres is thought out and the facilities of these Growth centres are proposed. It has been found that the remote sensing technique gives a hierarchy by which optimum location of growth centres in the region is comparatively very easy, time saving and economical.
