|Abstract:||A study has been undertaken to identify the favorable areas for artificial recharge in Chintapally mandal in Nalgonda district, Andhra Pradesh. Geographical Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing technology contributes an efficient and effective result oriented methods for studying the occurrence and movement of groundwater resources. Integration of various thematic layers such as geomorphology, slope, soil types, lineament density, and drainage density have been used to identify the suitable zones for the artificial recharge in the study area. For identifying the suitable zones, weightage and ranking scores were assigned to each thematic layer then using ARC/INFO GIS software, the above themes have been integrated and the areas suitable for artificial recharge have been identified using spatial analysis tools from GIS environment. The favorable areas for artificial recharge have been categorized into Very Good, Good, Moderate to Good, Moderate, Poor to Moderate and poor for recharge in the study area. 2010 CAFET-INNOVA TECHNICAL SOCIETY.
