Remote sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) data provides timely, accurate and reliable information at definite intervals in a cost effective manner and these tools are helpful in mapping and monitoring of natural resources available for proper utilization.The Meghadrigedda watershed is selected for the present study and has a gross capacity of 1169 Mc. Ft. For the identification of morphological features and analyzing their properties of the Meghadrigedda basin various GIS and image processing techniques have been adopted. The linear and aerial aspects of the basin were calculated and computed. It is 7th order drainage basin and drainage pattern is dendritic type. The results obtained from watershed delineation and prioritization has wider application in preservation of the watershed.
