Abstract: With rapid urbanization and shortage of space, various departments have started moving their offices and universities/ colleges to the rural areas. As a result there has been a very rapid change in the land use / land cover pattern of fringes connecting urban and rural areas. However with this rapid change, the concerned authorities are in difficulties to monitor and manage the resources and infrastructure. Hence it is imperative to create a database of all the available information along with proper mapping of the resources to have a proper mechanism and management plan for better developmental planning processes. In view of the above, this study was conducted at a small built up area (about 49 acre of habitat), a fringe to urban area i.e. Doon University, Dehradun, Uttrakhand. The techniques of Remote Sensing (RS), Geographical Information System (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) along with Survey of India topo-sheet 53 J/3 has been used to analyse the data and to create spatial and non-spatial database for Decision Support System (DSS). The outputs were taken in the form of different thematic layers with aerial estimations, analysis of per capita of drinking water, irrigation water ability and electricity consumption along with rain water harvesting capacity for the different projected years. This paper presents an overview and preliminary results of integrated database and its optimum utilisation for better governance.
