Groundwater is the largest available reservoir of freshwater. But the rapid increase in the population and urbanisation, has led to over exploitation of groundwater which imposed tremendous pressure on global groundwater resources. Because of the hidden and dynamic nature of groundwater, it requires appropriate quantifcation for the formulation of ground- water planning and management strategies. The present study evaluates the efcacy of geospatial technology based Multi Infuence Factor (MIF), Weight of Evidence (WofE) and Frequency Ratio (FR) technique to evaluate groundwater potential using a case study of basaltic terrain. The thematic layers infuencing the groundwater occurrence viz. rain- fall, slope, geomorphology, soil type, land use, drainage density, lineament density, and elevation were prepared using satellite images, hydrologic, hydrogeologic and relevant feld data. Based on the conceptual frameworks of MIF, WofE and FR techniques these thematic layers and their features were assigned with appropriate weight and then inte- grated in the ArcGIS platform for the generation of aggregated raster layer which portray the groundwater potential zones. The results of validation showed that the groundwater potential delineated using MIF technique has a prediction accuracy of 81.94%, followed by WofE technique (76.19%) and FR techniques (71.43%). It is concluded that for evaluation of groundwater potential, the MIF technique is most reliable, followed by the WofE tech- nique. The evaluated groundwater potential zones are useful as a scientifc guide to identify the suitable location of wells and recharge structure in a cost-efcient way and also for the development of structured and pragmatic groundwater management strategies.
