    Study of the land-use/land cover (LULC) changes close to the boundary of the buildup area (urban fringe) provides deeper understanding of a land-use dynamics at different spatial and temporal scales. Few thoughts have given to the analysis of complicated spatial landscape at a fringe area. The aim of this paper is to resolve this bias by focusing on these interfaces. Results of this paper show that majority of new urban development appear inside the fringe area. Moreover, two different processes of urban dynamics - addition of small and emergence of large buildup patches - have been revealed.
