This article depicts on discussions about land use and land cover change distribution in Khorezm province, Uzbekistan between 1987 and 2019. For the study Landsat 5 TM and Landsat 8 OLI respectively used to detect land use changes in the study area. Khorezm region affected by Aral Sea shrinkage having received salt wind from northeast of the region. Moreover, population increased within study period, making population density intense. Research is carried out to detect reflection of ecology and density in land use. RS techniques maximum likelihood employed to classify land use to generate land cover distribution map. In total seven class selected such as agricultural land, built up, bare land, lowland, saline land, sand and waterbody. The research of Khorezm region for 32 years has been thoroughly studied and found out that agricultural land, built up and saline land increased tremendously while lowland and bare soil are decreased accordingly. The result map can be used for decision makers and government bodies for future long term urban and regional planning.
