Abstract: Moon is major object of research and crater is one element. Impact craters are initial feature in lunar and planetary science. Estimation of crater is major challenges. Lunar surface is very interesting part of study specially detection of crater and its age. So, exact detection of crater is necessary. For morphological analysis and detection of crater size distribution lunar craters is necessary. Detection of craters from visual analysis may be a tough task because it needs vast information regarding that particular area also it need skill and lots of manpower. Thus cheapest and Powerful automatic crater detection methodology is required. For better detection of crater here image based crater detection is proposed. In this, the crater will detected with different methodology like SVD, KNN and Hybrid method using CHANDRAYAAN-1 TMC image with the help of MATLAB.KNN found better than SVD and hybrid method takes advantages of both.
