All phenomena in the universe are undergoing change and transformation. Certainly, we can say that there is no phenomenon on the planet that does not undergo metamorphosis. The difference between the phenomena in terms of change is the difference in the rate of change. In studies on land and natural resources, phenomena in general can be classified in terms of the rate of change into three categories: high speed (flood, earthquake, storm, climate change), average speed (land use, urban development) and slow (topographic changes, etc.) phenomena. Remote sensing has made it possible to study average and high speed changes. With the availability of images for two different times, changes can be assessed. In this regard, using images of the years 1988 and 1998 from the city of Tehran, changes in land use in this city have been retrieved and determined.
