The aim of this study was to determine the spectral characteristics and distribution of the wheat growing areas in West Mediterranean Region by means of the digital data from the Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper (TM) Satellite. Optimum band combination was found to be 4th, 5th and 7th bands for determination of the wheat growing areas in this region. The TM digital data of the research area was classified by using maximum likelihood method with this band combination. In conclusion, the wheat-grown areas could be defined by with 95.3 % confidence.
