Today, we are facing with the ever-increasing advances in remote sensing and aerial photography and satellite imagery, with the increasing use of remote sensing and GIS in environmental planning, especially in various branches of natural sciences and earth sciences. In this paper, we have tried to examine the role and application of satellite imagery in environmental studies. GIS can be considered a high-level mapping product. The term "GIS" has been used in recent years as synonymous with the rapidly emerging technology for the processing of spatial data. GIS can be defined as a powerful set of computer tools for collecting, storing, restoring, transmitting and displaying spatial data from the real world for specific purposes.
