    Abstract

    The performances of the Landsat-5 TM and, SPOT -5 satellite sensors were compared for lineament mapping in Hulu Lepar area. This data set provided different spatial resolution (30 m for Landsat TM to 10 m for SPOT-5). Several commercial softwares are developed to deal with the automatic linear features extraction. PCI Geomatica software is used for lineaments extraction from Landsat TM and SPOT data under the default parameters. The extracted lineaments of landsat-5 and SPOT-5 bands show different length and patterns of the lineaments whereas these patterns do not resemble exactly a fault system in the area. The NIR bands produced higher lineaments number (frequency) compared with VIS, SWIR and TIR bands. The main orientations of the extracted lineaments of most Landsat and SPOT bands are NW-SE, N-S, E-W and NE-SW. These orientations are similar to fault orientations. Lineaments of some other bands have individual orientations.
