Abstract: Man has had to live with floods since the very inception of his existence. The impact of floods has been accentuated by ever-increasing activities of man in flood-plains of rivers to meet his requirements of food and fibre. Destruction of property and loss of life from floods continue to increase despite substantial invest-ments on flood protection works. These protection works, mainly structural in nature have failed to keep paw with continued deve-lopment in flood plains. Therefore, a preferred method of flood damage reduction would be to adjust use and occupancy of flood-plains through management and regulation of uses rather than solely by structural works. The first step in this effort is to map the flood-plain boundaries and other associated features of major rivers which are subjected to frequent flooding. Such a mapping by conventional met", is a time consuming and expensive procedure. Remote Sesning technic especially after the advent of satellites have shown great promise to delineate flood-plain features and inundated areas in a time anc cost effective manner.
