ABSTRACT During the last five decade the population of India has grown nearly two and a half times. In 2001, 306.9 million Indians (30.5%) were living in nearly 3,700 towns and cities spread across the country. Prognostic analysis indicates that it is expected to increase to over 533 million by 2021. It is a gradual concentration of populace in urban area.It is worth mentioning that at the moment, India is at low level of urbanization. As a result, most urban areas are characterized by underperformances in housing and water supply, insufficient sewerage disposal, traffic overcrowding, pollution, poverty and social discontent.These situations lead tourban governance a challenging task to plan, preservestrong urban environment. Consequently, there is an imperative to utilize the capabilities of the geomatic tools. This tool includes both aerial as well as satellite based systems. It helps in collecting a variety of information with ease, speed and on repetitive basis. Relevant information may be integrated in GIS to analyze the data in spatial domain. This eventually leads to develop many strategies (modeling). In addition the developed information offers interpretation of physical (spatial) data with other socio-economic data. Geomatics tools help in understanding the linkage between various components of planning process and making it more effective and meaningful. Keywords:high density housing; Geomatics, Remote Sensing and GIS.
