The gradual migration of local labor for jobs abroad has made a remarkable impact on the land use in the local region. The large scale migration was chiefly the outcome of unemployment in the local region as a result of the shutdown of the rayon industry which was the only source of income to the local village community. Two phenomena were observed parallel since 2001. First, the migration pattern of labor force in the study area, and second, the changes in land use pattern. In this background of the problem it is interesting to observe the land use changes through remote sensing during different time periods.
