In this paper, MODIS snow cover remote sensing data and Geographic Information System (GIS) technology were used to analyze extraction methods of the snow cover area information. And taking a river drainage basin as an example, this paper studied the variation characteristics of snow cover area in mountainous watershed from 2005 to 2007 in spring and summer to further provide a basis and reference for understanding the process of snowmelt in this drainage basin. The results show that the snow
