This paper introduces the image processing methods of Worldview-Ⅱ image data and the study on the interpreting of structure.By employing ETM+ and Worldview-Ⅱ remote sensing images,with geomorphic analysis,to carry out structural interpretation in Gaize area,west-central Tibet,China.It is the first time to do such big range of remote sensing interpreting on the Gaize area,where is at high altitude,and difficult to deploy the ground work in.The results suggested that the interpretation works have gotten the good results based on Worldview-Ⅱ remote sensing images.And according to the results,there are three types of fault structures developed in the area,i.e.E-striking thrusts,N-striking normal faults and NE- or NW-striking strike-slip faults,in response to the prevailing stress regime of N-S maximum stress and W-E minimum stress that results in the N-S contraction and W-E tension in Tibet.Remarkable geomorphic features have been controlled by the fault structures:① the Relacuo lake to the north of the Gaize town is developed on a graben bounded by N-S striking normal faults;② the Xiagacuo lake is formed on a bend-release basin as a result of the transtensional horsetail termination of a NW trending dextral strike-slip fault;③the fluvial plain to the north of Gaize is controlled by a NE-trending transtensional sinistral strike-slip fault.
