Travel today is relatively faster and people across the world are travelling more than ever before. Its demand regarding forecast is an essential part of transportation planning in order to evaluate future needs of an urban area. Population growth, development of the mega cities and their impacts on urban traffic are the most important problems of the metro cities. The toxic vehicular exhausts are a source of considerable air pollution. Over increasing traffic density posed continued threat to ambient air quality and responsible for producing agents of health hazards. Geospatial technology provides the smartest way to solve these problems as it can cover a large area in a fraction of time. The present study focuses on the identification of traffic intensities and noise level measured at selected traffic sites in the Varanasi city. Noise levels recorded in the city, are much higher than the permissible level and are likely to causes associated health and psychological illnesses to nearby inhabitant. The present paper describes the traffic impact on environment of Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India for the year 2008.
