Development Authority has decided to revise the Master Plan by using modern technology such as Satellite imagery. Accordingly the whole project was entrusted to the private consultant M/s Vision Solutions, Hubli. Through N.R.S.A. Hyderabad, the quick bird Satellite imagery (with 0.06 mtrs. resolution) of Belgaum City was procured. The Satellite image was digitized and Base map was prepared by incorporating all layouts.
The population as per 2001 census for the Urban Agglomeration is 4,75,000 excluding cantonment population. The projection of population was done by using 4 methods and finally 8 lakh population was taken as projected population (average of 4 methods) for the year 2021. Considering a density of 98 Persons per Hectare, area required to accommodate the 8 lakh population for the plan period of 2021 works out to 8212.06 Hectares.
The layouts were incorporated in Base map and then using Satellite imagery, all existing developments in city, road alignment and other details were incorporated along with manual existing land use and thus the existing land use map was prepared.
