La sur-urbanisation de la ville de Casablanca : étude de l’évolution spatio-temporelle de la ville de Casablanca entre 1987 et 2017

Abstract : This research paper focuses on the study of the spatio-temporal evolution of the urban area of Casablanca (Morocco) over the last three decades. After a historical retrospective that allowed us to understand the past of this city in order to grasp the drivers of its evolution, we used high spectral resolution satellite images to highlight the mutations of its urban area and quantify the landscape modifications. For this purpose, three multi-spectral Landsat images taken respectively in 1987, 2003 and 2017 were processed and analyzed through a supervised thematic classification in order to map the evolution of the land use. The results indicate that during the study period, Casablanca underwent a considerable densification, coupled with a clear extension towards its periphery to the detriment of the surrounding agricultural areas, as a consequence of the post-independence population growth. This resulted in the emergence of new built-up areas consisting of slums and social housing in the eastern part, and new peripheral urban centers such as Bouskoura, Naouceur and Deroua in the south.
