In this paper, the geological aspect, topographic characteristics, hypsometric analysis and geomorphological characteristic of the Pench reserve area is analysed and described by DEM data, and multi-temporal, multi-sensors, multi-spectral, & multi-resolution satellite remote sensing imageries. Based on the digital elevation model (SRTM-DEM, ASTER-DEM, CartoSAT-DEM) data, LandSAT imageries i.e. LandSAT-7 ETM+ data & LandSAT-8 OLI data, IRS imagery i.e. ResourceSAT-2 LISS-III data and 1:50,000 topographic map data, a comprehensive analysis and study on the geomorphology and topography of the Pench reserve area was conducted using such means as data pre-processing, interpretation and mapping, on the software platforms including ESRI ArcGIS-10.3, and ERDAS Imagine-2013, which aided a better option for visualizing the terrain and mapping. This observations and analysis are able to improve by measure, monitor and analysis forms of terrain using by satellite imagery and DEM data. Using both DEM and remote sensing together open new dimension on earth sciences and investigation topographic and geomorphological characteristics of the landforms.
