A detailed land use / land cover mapping has been carried out in the Jagtial district of Telangana State, India, by applying visual and digital interpretation IRS-R2-LISS-IV satellite imagery. The diverse Land use category as forest, agriculture, liquidation, water bodies, drainage, transportation and land cover pattern is divided into built upland, cultivated land, forest land and uncultivated land (Barren land).These features follow a general trend of having a set of natural resources in the study region.
