It is increasingly evident that urban sprawl leads to dramatic changes in landscape patterns and thus changes in ecosystem functioning. Analysis of the landscape patterns and their dynamic under urbanization is of great importance for sustainable development, especially in cities with significant changes like Shanghai. The objective of this research is to illustrate the landscape dynamic under the urbanization process in a selected test area of Shanghai in 1991, 1998 and 2007 using multitemtopal remote sensing and landscape metrics; and to determine the optimal resolution suitable for this case study. Preliminary results show that it is a quick and executable way to assessing the impact of urban sprawl on landscape dynamic using remote sensing data and landscape matrices; and the optimal resolution for the case study is 10-30 meters.
