Cities are experiencing an increased use of utilities in their day-to-day life. The growth and development of the urban area largely depend on provision of urban utility services, As a matter of fact there is a wide gap between the availability and need of the utilities. Good quality of road Network, Water Supply, Proper Urban Land use and Major Urban services and School, Bank, Hospitals, Fire and Police station, Market and Entertainment are Major Utilities which indicate of the quality of city. GIS is one of the most efficient ways to get the view of any object or phenomena on the Earth’s surface. Remote sensing techniques is an efficient tool for identifying the Urban growth from spatial and temporal data. Here an attempt has been made to understand the urban infrastructure using RS and GIS. The present research paper focuses on the mode of eliciting the urban utilities in a cartographic manner and indicating its proximity with respect to Road Network and find the optimal path of Tumkur Urban. Geo- eye Data and SOI toposheet are used for reference. GPS Survey carried out for collecting the various utility services within the Tumkur urban area. LISS IV Satellite image used to prepare LU/ LC map, Network analysis used to find out optimal path for rapidly accessible utilities. From the study, it is concluded that there is an ample scope for providing the utilities in the periphery of Tumkur. Besides prevailing clustered service center only in the city.
