Present research paper is an attempt to classifications of the Land Use Land Cover (LULC) by using supervised classification in the Sub-watershed of Gori Ganga watershed Kumaun Himalaya, Uttarakhand (India) where Gori Ganga watershed has 2191.63 km2 area. For the study of detect sub-watersheds used of remote sensing data Cartosat-1 of 2008 and LULC classified by using of Santinal-2 of 2018. Using pour point technique for the Gori Ganga watershed is divisible in to 9 sub-watersheds. Geographically distribution of 9 sub watersheds are about 8.69% (190.51 km2) area covered by Goukha Gad, about 10.83% (237.31 km2) area covered by Gori Gad, about 7.42% (162.53 km2) area covered by Lwan Gad, about 10.39% (227.82 km2) area covered by Ralam Gad, about 8.83% (193.46 km2) area covered by Mandakini Gad, about 9.82% (215.15 km2) area covered by Bona Gad, 3.83% (83.97 km2) area covered by Baram Gad, 3.92% (85.91 km2) area covered by Raunits Gad and 36.27% (794.97 km2) area covered by Gori Ganga sub watershed. Present study describes details LULC pattern of the 9 sub-watersheds based on remote sensing and GIS. A brief account of these results itâ€™s discussed in the following paragraphs.
