Abstract

The IRS-1D, LISS-IV satellite image of an area of 6744 Sq.km corresponding to the part of Mahabubnagar and Nalgonda districts of Telangana northwestern part of proterozoic Cuddapaha basin of Eastern Dharwar craton (EDC), India, was analyzed. Remote sensing data and geographic information system (GIS) were used to determine the geomorphological, geological, structural, drainage maps are prepared along with the existing maps. The zones of intersection of structural trends, resulting in circular drainage to oval shaped structural features, faults, dykes are mapped which could have acted as potential areas of minerals resources in the study region.

Keywords: Dharwar Craton, Peninsular Gneissic Complex , Lineaments, Driange, Geomorphology
