Geospatial techniques are the powerful tools that can be used to demonstrate and elaborate methods for decision making system related to geographical analysis. Geospatial techniques include Remote Sensing and GIS (Geographical Information System). Nowadays Geospatial technique act as a major loop for land resource monitoring and management. This research aims on providing a strategic technique for the management of land resources by integrating geo-spatial techniques. With the integration of this technology, it would enable us to efficiently plan storm water drainage and water supply of any geographical region. Geographical Information Systems and Planning Support encompasses subjects like 3D visualization of buildings into cities by incorporating tools of Geographical Information Systems, a platform for urban control analysis which includes multi-disciplinary factors. These factors are used to understand the phenomenon, retrieves ecological networks from aerial photography and local urban planning system database. Geo-spatial techniques allows efficient planning by providing accurate data about the geography and predicting urban growth of a city. This research comprises of satellite images like LANDSAT, LISS3 and SRTM data which help in broader aspects of urban planning and this satellite data is freely available. Planning for a sustainable urban and rural development must aim towards impactful long-term goals and utilize knowledge about the environmental consequences of different solutions, but should not be based solely on means-ends rationality.
This research aims to provide better planning of land and water resource by using open source satellite images such as LISS3, Landsat TM, Landsat ETM+, and SRTM.
