The application of remote sensing technology has shown a great promise for large-scale geological mapping. This work presents an investigation for enhancing lineaments with possible relevance to faults, in Bundelkhand Craton, India using IRS-1D satellite image and standard geographic information system (GIS) techniques. The capability of the IRS 1D infrared bands to detect lineaments that might be related to failure of the crust has been ascertained. The results obtained from the interpretation

Lineaments related to quartz reef have been evaluated as potential faults. The methodological approach adopted in the present study has contributed not only in the identification of several known large-scale faults in the study but also in the mapping of their potential extensions.
