Established fact is that no urban area exists with the composition of slum dwellers and squatter settlements. As per the UN Habitat, Slum areas are defined as group of individuals living under same roof lacking basic facilities such as drinking water sources, sanitation facilities, durability of housing, security of tenure. In the recent years, Geomatics (RS, GIS, and GPS) has become an indispensible tool for planning and governance of urban areas. It can be applied as decision support system for proper planning and governance of urban areas with respect to resource allocation and generation, social environmental & infrastructural facilities. The present paper makes an attempt to study road network, drainage facilities, electrical network and generation of slum boundaries using GPS by field survey for Addagutta area in Hyderabad, India. Addagutta is one of the Asia’s biggest slum area spread over approximately 100 acres, 5000 slum dwellers and population of more than 80,000. With GPS, slum boundary has been generated and laid over Google imagery.Field surveys have been done for socio-economic data, road network, electrical network and drainage. With the help of digital information all the required data are integrated in GIS for urban management which assists the urban local bodies. Keeping in view of the Government of India’s prestigious project Rajiv Awas Yojana, aimed at creating a ‘Slum Free India’ by giving support to those states who are willing to assign property rights to slum dwellers. Present work enables the planners, administrators, in execution of these kinds of Urban developmental projects.
