Abstract

Land use, land cover, and soil texture studies are important for watershed characteristics. Most of the hydrological phenomenon depend upon these characteristics. Remote sensing is a powerful spin-off from space exploitation, and it has emerged as a tool for watershed characteristics, planning and management in recent times. The integrated approach of remote sensing and GIS has capabilities of data explanation, storage, retrieval and manipulation, and plays an important role for systematic analysis of various lithological, geomorphological, soil hydrological and land use characterization following the synoptic and multi-spectral coverage of terrain. In the present study, IRS-IB, 26 January 2004 satellite data have been analyzed in conjunction with topographical data of Harve watershed for land use, land cover and soil texture studies of a watershed under the GIS environment.
