Abstract : Various projects were formulated for the utilisation of the Bhaskara TV data by the user agencies in collaboration with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). A number of application are as like land use, snow cover, geology, geomorphology etc., were identified to assess the utility of Bhaskara imagery. This presentation briefly reports the analysis of the Bhaskara imagery and the results obtained for two test areas, one covering parts of South Gujarat State and the other around Cuddalore in Tamil Nadu State of India. Land cover maps have been prepared for both the study areas using bulk processed and digitally enhanced data. An attempt has been made to prepare geomorphological and geological maps of the Cuddalore region in Tamil Nadu State. The Bhaskara imagery yielded significant information regarding land cover, geomorphology and geology of the study area on regional scale i.e. 1:2 M. Limited digital processing aided the interpretation in land cover mapping.
