Linear Imaging Self Scanning Sensor (LISS-3) onboard Resoucesat-1 and 2 Satellites have been used extensively for various land cover-land use applications. In this study, we examined the potential of using Resourcesat-2 LISS-3 images in the absence of LANDSAT-8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) images. This paper compares the capabilities of LISS-3 sensor with OLI sensor. LISS-3 images were selected for comparison because of their close resemblance in electromagnetic spectrum range with LS-8 OLI images. Images of LS-8 OLI and RS-2 LISS-3 of the same area in Andhra Pradesh were used to evaluate the comparative performances based on the intra-inter band correlation, spectral vegetation indices and land cover classification. The results showed that in most cases the LS-8 OLI and the RS-2 LISS-3 images are comparable. This study also indicated that LISS-3 images could fill the data gaps in OLI images for land-cover studies, vice versa.
