ABSTRACT

This study aims to decipher the groundwater status of the parts of Tigray area, Ethiopia using an integrated methodology of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS). Digitized vector maps of the study area, that is, geology, land use and/or cover, and drainage, were generated and converted to raster data. The theme weight and class weights were assigned to the raster maps of the respective parameters. Weight age to the layers was assigned using an analytical hierarchy process and further overlay analysis was carried out in the ArcGIS environment to decipher the groundwater resources of the study area.
