This paper focuses on the study of the terrain and major landfeatures of upper Krishna Basin (Yerala River) using remote sensing and Geographical InformationSystem (GIS). Representation of the terrain is based on the digital elevation model (DEM) .The Landsat7 TM and ETM+ images of the study area were processed and interpreted to extract information aboutland-resources delineation (forest-vegetation cover, water resources, and agricultural and residentialareas) in the region. The information provided in this study has many areas of application, includinghydrological watershed analysis and modeling, environmental management and planning, landform andnat
