THE CONCEPT OF URBAN SPRAWL AND ITS CAUSES

Abstract

Author(s): Zuhal KARAKAYACI

Urban sprawls are transition zones with indefinite borders between rural and urban areas. Many factors cause to the urban sprawl such as population increase, socio-economic factors, technological development and development policies. To have the indefinite borders of the urban sprawl is appeared as a major problem, because urban sprawls have occurred as a result of uncontrolled and unplanned growth. The arrangements should be made for resolving of uncertainties in urban sprawl to eliminate these problems. In this regard, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) would help about determining the borders of urban sprawls and quick data production
