GIS002 – Identification of Ground Water by Using GIS


Groundwater is a critical asset contributing altogether in absolute yearly supply. Nonetheless, overexploitation has drained groundwater accessibility extensively and furthermore prompted land subsidence at a few spots. Evaluating the potential zone of groundwater energize is critical for the insurance of water quality and the administration of groundwater frameworks. Groundwater potential zones are demarked with the assistance of remote detecting what’s more, Geographic Information System (GIS) strategies. In this examination a standard philosophy is proposed to decide groundwater potential utilizing incorporation of RS and GIS strategy.

The composite guide is produced utilizing GIS instruments. The precise data to get the parameters that can be considered for distinguishing the groundwater potential zone for example, geography, incline, seepage thickness, geomorphic units and lineament thickness are created utilizing the satellite information and overview of India (SOI) toposheets of scale 1:50000. It is then coordinated with weighted overlay in ArcGIS.

 Appropriate positions are relegated for every class of these parameters. For the different geomorphic units, weight factors are chosen dependent on their ability to store groundwater. This method is rehashed for the various layers and resultant layers are renamed. The groundwater potential zones are ordered into five classes like exceptionally poor, poor, moderate, great and astounding. The utilization of recommended system is shown for a chosen ponder territory in Parbhani area of Maharashtra. This groundwater potential data will be valuable for viable recognizable proof of reasonable areas for extraction of water.
