Water is more essential for all living organisms in this world. The amount of rainfall in the forest is reducing rapidly while the need has increased. During summer the water shortage rises acutely in the forest areas. The dried up water bodies in and around the forest region drive the animals into the human habituated areas in search of water. The physical layout of area upstream from a specified outlet point is called as watershed or basin. If management of watershed is not done properly then there will be depletion of other natural resources based on this watershed. In this case GIS can be used to analyze the watersheds around the forest and to check the availability of water inside the forest. The result of the analysis of this collected forest areas will be useful to find areas where the water is available in forest. Thus the main objective is to locate artificial ponds in forests.
