Abstract

This study implies the images of Landsat TM and SPOT 4 for lineament mapping covering an area of 750km 2 located in the middle part of Cameron Highland-Gua Musang road (km40-km75) Malaysia. In general, the lithologies in this area consists of conglomerate, schists, phyllite, shale, sandstone and granite which fall in the age of Ordovician to Trias. The objectives of this lineament mapping are to identify the best band and using 5 × 5 kernel size to obtain lineaments, to compare the capability of Landsat TM and SPOT 4 images to show lineaments and later to determine their correlation with the published geological map. Foremost, Landsat TM and SPOT 4 images are digitally processed which involved radiometric correction, contrast stretching, histogram equalization, and directional filtering to enhance the quality of the images. Clearly band 4 of Landsat TM image and band three of SPOT 4 image are the best to show lineaments. The sum of 91 lineaments with 238.9km long are mapped from Landsat TM image and 95 lineaments with the total of 371.0km long from SPOT 4 image. Both data showed that the area along lithologic border between Triassic igneous rocks and with the Ordovician-Silur metamorphic rocks in the South has the highest lineaments density. The dominant directions of lineaments for both maps are between 310°-319° which is Northwest-Southeast. For the fault correlation with the geological map, clearly SPOT 4 has better correlation with 78.95% fault correlated compared to 73.68% for Landsat TM. Subsequently, seven long lineaments which are possibly fault obtained from SPOT 4 image and three from Landsat TM image. As a conclusion, SPOT 4 showed better resolution for lineaments mapping compared to Landsat TM in term of number, length, and its correlation with the geological map. However, if detail lineaments map is required, both data are needed for analysis.
