Abstract: The study area selected for the present research work was Kaunia upazila of northern part of Rangpur district, Bangladesh located between 8918′0′′E to 8930′0′′E longitude and 2542′0′′N to 2550′0′′N latitude. The aim of the study was to identified geomorphic unit and prepare geomorphic and land use map with the help of remotely sensed data. Remotely sense data provide a synoptic view of landscape on images. Geomorphic units were identified on the basis of tone, texture, size, shape, color and extract the precise information from the Landsat TM (FCC) images. Landforms were mainly active channel deposits, abandon channel deposits, natural levee deposits, flood plain deposits and flood basin deposits in the study area. From these geomorphic units together with land use were mapped using SPOT (band 4) panchromatic satellite image with visual interpretation technique along with field observation. The land use mapping will help to provide geo-scientific information for future development plan. Remotely sense data recommend identifying, evaluating and time-costing effective technique to fulfill the study objectives.
