The high-resolution Cartosat-1 stereo image data is expected to have significant impact in topographic mapping and watershed applications. The objective of the present investigation is to make an assessment of the potential of the Cartosat-1 data in generation of DEMs and watershed delineation. The collection of GCPs presents a significant problem in many practical applications due to non availability of GCPs. A DEM generation method which requires no GCPs would therefore be of significant interest to users of stereo data. In this study, automatic DEM extraction of Cartosat-1 multi-View data without the use of GCPs has been evaluated. The assessment is based on the entropy analysis of the fore/aft images, geometric quality of the fore/aft images (2-D perspective), generation of high-resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM), Quality evaluation in different elevation strata, generation of ortho-image and application potential of the photogrammetric products for natural resources applications. Watershed boundary, flow accumulation, flow direction, flow length, stream ordering have been prepared using ArcHydro Tool; and contour have been prepared using Surface Tool in ArcGIS-10 software, and DEM is generated using LPS software
