Resource planning is the most important and primary factor for carrying out developmental work in any country. This is particularly more imperative for our country where majority of the population live in villages. Raikholi village of district Almora, Uttarakhand should be drawn for micro level analysis. Now days, remote sensing and GIS are providing now tools for perfect planning and advanced ecosystem management. This paper examines the ease of remote sensing and GIS in mapping land cover of Raikholi village for the year 2001 and 2010 in Almora district of Uttarakhand. So with the help of Google imageries, elevation data of SRTM, Census of India 2001 data and field survey we acquire various data and through GIS software we prepare resource map to do perfect planning of this area. In short, this process helps in the development of village information science for resource planning.
