Land, a non-renewable resource, is central to all primary production systems. The geospatial technology of Remote Sensing and GIS holds the potential for timely and cost – effective assessment of natural resources. The techniques have been used extensively in the tropics for generating valuable information about various surface features of the earth. Therefore, we have used Remote Sensing and GIS to study land use land cover changes, and Drainage pattern of Pulivendula Taluk, Kadapa district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The study area situated between parallels of 77055’ to 78031’33” E longitude and 14015’ to 14045’N latitude with intended boundary falling in Survey of India toposheet no.57J02, 57J03, 57J06 and 57J07.
