Abstract: RESOURCES AND INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT IN KATHIATOLI DEVELOPMENT BLOCK, ASSAM USING G I S BASED SPATIAL MODELS Introduction to the problem We are entering twenty-first century amid the prospects and problems of the human society in various aspects. In this context, the issues are ranging from growing population to dwindling of resources, environmental crises, socio-economic and political instabilities and ever widening gap in distribution of wealth among nations and regions. As the pressure on natural and land resources increases the greater is the need for properly organized agreements about how they should be shared not only for the benefit of humans, but also for all forms of life. Under such a coexistence of various problems among countries and regions, there are emerging possibilities to deal with the problems using the recent developments in science and technology. The space technology has given earth resources scientists enormous advantages for generating useful information on exploitation and management of resources. The land and water resource evaluation studies arose through the need to match the land requirements for producing food and supporting populations under a given conditions of physical and cultural environment. That is why monitoring, assessment, management and planning of both natural and cultural resources at local level or regional level have become an urgent need of mankind to survive on this planet. The development of mathematical tools during 1930s and 1940s, digital computers in 1960s and 1970s and space technology in very recent times has revolutionized the world and enabled us to have the science and technology of Geoinformatics to handle spatial problems. It is the common platform to use the remote sensing data, aerial photographs, data generated through Global Positioning System (GPS), conventional maps and survey data. In this vast area of knowledge, Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, GIS and GPS are developing as independent science and technology tools to address...
