Doddaballapur district comprises of about 12micro watershed which contains several mini watershed .The study area includes Bashettihalli mini watershed 77°33'0''E to 77°35'0''E latitude and 13°14'30''N to 13°17'30''N longitude. The study involves the morphological analysis, which includes the various methods of exploring the mathematical relationships between various stream attributes. There is a scarcity of waterin the study area hence in order to overcome the problem a detailed analysis of catchment characteristics is being presented in the paper. Hence for the study high resolution IRS LISS III image is used and its processed in Erdas imagine software for planning of watershed development. Different Morphometric analysis provides the explanation of physical characteristics of the watershed which are useful for the areas of land use planning, soil conservation, terrain elevation and soil erosion.
