Urban sprawl and urban morphology changes are addressed to analyze the landscape changing. In each period, the city develops differently based on human and environment factors. Therefore, some of the urban sprawl methods have been developed to present and address the development of the land use (LU) as part of population growth and landscape changing. After considering the change of the population and the LU over the last twenty years, it is important to examine the shape of the new subdivisions that have been developed during the period of 1998 – 2018 and how the urban policy has been applied to control the urbanization. Therefore, there are three main focuses this study tries to approach: (1) developing a method to determine population distribution and density-dasymetric mapping; (2) changes in urban sprawl and urban morphology; (3) and effects of urban policy change and residential demand in informal subdivisions.
