Abstract
The present study aims to find out the land cover/ land use of a rainfed watershed in Lalitpur district of Uttar Pradesh. The total area of the watershed is 995.86 Km2. The watershed falls in central Bundelkhand region in Uttar Pradesh. In this study, IRS P6 LISS III satellite data was used to create a land cover/land use (LC/LU) map of the watershed using the visual image interpretation techniques. Twelve land cover/land use (LC/LU) classes were identified using standard false colour composite (FCC) image. It has been found that the watershed is predominantly occupied by agricultural land (cultivated land and uncultivated land) contributing to more than 80% of watershed area. The watershed generally depicts moderate to high runoff characters.
