Ground water is one of the vital natural resource available on the earth. Due to rapid growth of population, urbanization and industrialization the available water resource are unable to meet the agriculture, industrial and domestic needs. The application of remote sensing and GIS rapid effective technique for ground water potential zone mapping has become a breakthrough in the field of ground water research. The present study has been undertaken to demarcate the ground water recharge potential zone using GIS approach. In this present study indicate various ground water potential zone for the assessment of ground water availability in Dhanbad district. The study has been delineated using remote sensing and GIS technique. Thematic map such as Geology, hydro geomorphology, Land Use / Land Cover, Drainage density, Slope and Water table maps are prepared in Arc GIS 10.1 based on weighted overlay analysis. Moreover each weighted thematic layer is statistically computed to get the ground water potential zone. The ground water potential zone were divide into four categorize very low, low, moderate & high. The result depicts the ground water potential zone helpful for better planning and management of ground water resource.
