In the present scenario of our worldâ€™s burgeoning population which is becoming increasingly difficult, it is must rather than a challenge for any country to meet the task of providing sufficient quantity of water to each and every person in the face of the changing consumption patterns, impacts of the climate change and degradation of the finite land and water resources. India has made tremendous progress in the aerospace technology in the last two decades. We are also one of the developing countries facing the natural disasters and trying level best to mitigate their ill effects. At the best we can minimize their effect. To achieve this, we need to have a comprehensive management program dealing with mapping and monitoring .Ground water is easily the most important component and constitutes about Geomatic technologies used in the identification of ground water potential mapping in the Chilika Catchment area of Odisha state at micro level. The Chilika catchment needs to delineate the potential zone for the sustainable ground water management and development. Satellite image along with other thematic data like slope, soil, geology, landuse / landcoiver and drainage has been utilized about the study area.
