Abstract: The remote sensing technology were useful and has shown a great promise for large-scale geological mapping to identified of structural features, such as faults and folds. The study presents an investigation for enhancing lineaments with possible relevance to faults in Berau Basin, East Kalimantan, Indonesia using a multi-spectral ASTER satellite image and standard geographic information systems (GIS) techniques. The feature of structural geology in the surface can be recognizing on satellite images. To identification of lineaments possibly related to faults can be ASTER DEM under certain conditions. The result study shown that there are a new 20 faults were identified during the study, offering to updating and modifying of existing geological map of the study area.
