With ever increasing pressure of population on natural resources and its ever increasing demand, particularly for agriculture, industry and domestic purpose. Water and land become scarce resource in real sense. In this situation 'Watershed Development and Management' become a key for sustainable development. With the large investment of financial resources in the watershed programme, it is important that the programme becomes successful. In this regard there is a demand for the development of appropriate technologies that can ensure the sustainable development and management of the natural resources. Recent advances in Remote sensing and GIS provide very useful information in undertaking the integrated resource development. Satellite remote sensing provides reliable and accurate information on natural resources, which is pre-requisite for planned and balanced development at watershed level. Remote sensing is the most efficient way for assessment of our natural resources. Here, an attempt has been made to apply the recent Geoinformatic techniques like GIS, GPS and Remote sensing to extend the prospects of Watershed Management.
