Geospatial technique were used for land and water management action plan for Dhangaon micro watershed in Bemetara district, Chhattisgarh. Keeping in view the need of micro level planning and usefulness of modern tools and technology a study on water resource planning of water resources for micro watershed was conducted. The objective of the present research work was to prepare the thematic maps of land use/ land cover, soil, slope and drainage using satellite imagery data and survey of India (SOI) toposheet of micro watershed and to integrate all the maps under GIS environment to prepare the water resource management plans for the study of micro watershed. The study will be helpful in identification of sites for construction of different soil and water conservation structures like water harvesting structures, check dams, farm ponds, percolation tanks, nala widening and deepening of drainage network etc. Different soil and water conservation works are suggested under water resource action plan with specific sites, locations and maps. The study will be helpful in sustainable development of the natural resources of the micro watershed with the proper implementation of the proposed action plans.
