This paper discusses the role of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System in management of watershed for the purpose of placement of Water Harvesting Structures like Check Dams, Percolation Tanks, Farm Ponds, Bore Well, Dug well,etc. In this paper, examples of 10 projects are included which presented to illustrate the initiaves the Watershed Management that have been implemented for the Placement of Water harvesting structures. The various thematic maps like soil map, land use map, slope map and DEM map were prepared for the placement of water harvesting structures. Also they have studied the subsurface Resistivity sounding test which provides the subsurface Information regarding subsurface resistivity distribution and thickness of layers which can be correlated with the local geology of the study area.
