    Geospatial technology is fast growing segment of information technology that combines multiple applications like GIS, remote sensing, cad, and imaging tools. The geospatial technology capabilities in combination like other technologies can be decision making tools for planning. In the present times fisheries and aquatic science professionals are using GIS as a resource management tools. In this context, a study was performed where mapping of fisheries profile of Chhattisgarh state was performed through GIS tools having critical geographic dimensions. The mapped information can be sued for the purpose of planning and decision making as each aspect of the map has different components involved. For this purpose, at the core of the system the data was asse4ssed at an integrated level from disparate sources mainly level statistical hand book of Chhiattisgarh state at district level. Data was brought in tabular form through Microsoft Excel and then joined to Arc info version 9.3.1 GIS Software with digitized map of Chhattisgarh state to enable mapping. This was further synchronized and integrated to generate four thematic maps searchable on several criteria.
