The pressures on the natural resources have tremendously increased over years by man?s greed for commercialization and livelihood of local people. Devoid of regeneration, population and wide scale tree felling depleted the natural resources to a level, which posed a problem for the very sustenance of man. Therefore, it is imperative to understand the consequences of manmade initiatives and to devise proper strategies to counteract these detrimental effects to keep a balance of the environment, ecology, green cover, and human livelihood. Since time immemorial Environment and Development are going together as two wheels of a cart. These two aspects are the determinants of human welfare and prosperity. The present study demonstrates the scope, methodology and outcomes of landuse/landcover mapping of IGNP command area in Bikaner district. IRS-IC/ID, LISS-III data was interpretated using hybrid approach for the mapping of various landuse/landcover categories on1: 50,000 scale. IGNP Command area landuse/ landcover map will prepare. The overall landuse/landcover classes in the study area are divided into six categories. The category wise wastelands in the study area are builtup land (0.62322), agriculture land (19.3447), forest land (0.0650), Wasteland land (78.1550), waterbodies (1.7264), and wetland (0.0857). These maps are very useful for command area planning and can be used for taking suitable rehabilitation measures like plantations, afforestation etc.
