This paper presents the method of integrating remote sensing and GIS to analyze the urbanization trend through the impervious surface change in Can Tho City. The impervious surface maps were created from the multi-temporal LandSat images in 1997, 2005, 2010, 2016 and were overlaid in GIS to extract the urban expansion from 1997 to 2016. The results showed the urban area of Can Tho increased from 1506,638 ha in 1997 to 5611,114 ha in 2016, average growth rate of 14,3%/year. The integration of remote sensing and GIS was found to be effective in monitoring and analyzing urban growth patterns.
