Since the early 1970s, parallel to the developments in satellite and computer technology the remote sensing data have been utilized in a variety of subjects, forestry, cartography, geomorphology, geology, hydrology, urbanism, agriculture, etc., for the purpose to study the earth surface. At present, solution of a number of problems have been made easier through the advent of integrating the different data with the remote sensing data by transforming them into the same co-ordinate system, so that they are analyzed together. In this study, Gazikoy-Saros segment of the Northern Anatolian Fault and geomorphological -geological and tectonic structures around the Koru - Isiklar mountain have been analyzed by using the remote sensing data and digital elevation model. For this purpose, topographic maps of 1/25 000 scale and Landsat 5 TM and Spot P satellite data have been used.
