This chapter is aimed to discuss several limitations of urban growth analysis in brief. Remote sensing data are challenged by spatial, spectral, radiometric, and temporal resolutions as explained in  Chap. 4. In addition to these general resolution constrains, there are several other issues associated with growth measurement and analysis.
