Water scarcity has been widely called the top global issue of concern in the coming century in developed and developing countries. India is one of the countries, which is facing severe water scarcity. This is an important problem on which both the governmental and non-governmental organizations are working hard to overcome. Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System can be used as the effective tools to manage the watersheds by means of finding the suitable sites for water conservation structures. This paper describes the geo-spatial technology used to find out suitable sites for check dams, percolations tanks and farm ponds in a small watershed of Ujjani catchment. Results will show the locations of suitable sites of these structures with respect to the drainage map.
