Abstract : Water mapping is the idea of monitoring the distribution, status and the flow of water resources to identify where the resources are concentrated. Water stress comes when water use in geographic areas outstrips supply and water resources deteriorate or the water concentration level increases in pure land due to flood or any other factors. Experts and Researchers uses the images from satellite for mapping the flow of water concentrations through a country for keeping water flow track and fresh water level track which can also be used in data mining for present and future estimations. Hence, Experts and Researchers may use an automated tool for generating the water map. This will certainly increase the efficiency of their work. This research is to make an automated system which will automatically download MODIS data when new data is available, resample it and then create an NDVI sample for water mapping. The tools are currently working with data of Bangladesh and in future we will look forward to deal with a larger scale.
