Abstract: Economic deeds ranging from agriculture to industry, Water is one of the key resources. In all climatic regions of India, ground water has become a very important source of water supplies due to its inherent qualities. To understand the occurrence, distribution and movement of ground water, mapping of geomorphological characteristics of the study area is important . This paper deals with a range of ground water potential zones in Amaravati capital city, Andhra Pradesh, India, for the estimation of ground water availability. In this work Remote sensing and GIS technique like overlay analysis is used to evaluate the ground water potential zones by using Landsat-8 2018 image and Toposheets from Survey Of India (SOI). By performing this analysis different phases of ground water potential zones will be identified i.e., good, moderate and poor. The results shows that the groundwater potential zones in the capital city are found to be useful in better improvement and managing of groundwater resources.
Keywords: Ground Water, Remote Sensing, GIS, Overlay Analysis.
