The Qinling orogenic belt is located between the North China plate and the Yangtze plate. Subparallel shear zones are developed in the North Qinling orogenic belt， and formed specific structural patterns together with the secondary faults and fault blocks. Although there are superposed by later brittle deformation， but it still can be seen that these faults formed a regular structural pattern， reflecting the different structural types and tectonic activities. Because there are high mountains and dense forests in some areas of Qinling orogenic belt， it increases the difficulty of field work in the region. Therefore， we try to use image processing and structure interpretation of high resolution satellite images obtained by the Google Earth software， to analysis deformation characteristics and association style of faults in the North Qinling orogenic belt， and attempt to study deformation characteristics and structural style of large fault belts on the orogen scale， to explore the way of movement and evolvement rules.
