Abstract: The groundwater is the most important resources everywhere in the world and is decrease gradually. In construction, here is a need for separation of groundwater possible region. As the awareness and needs of the common people towards water is increasing the estimation of water is touched in all divisions. At the same time, surface water assets are getting to be insufficient to satisfy the water request. With the goal that systematic ordering of groundwater development using present-day system is important for the right management and use of this respected asset. Yet at the same time, groundwater assets have not yet been accurately damaged, keeping this in view, the current analysis have contained to outline the groundwater potential regions in Varattar river basin Tamil Nadu & Kerala by using geospatial approach. The geospatial have turned out to be one of the substantial tools in the field of subsurface water study, which assistances in surveying, observing and monitoring groundwater capitals. Now to identify the groundwater possible region applied through various topical maps of geomorphology, streams, soil, land use/land cover and slope with IDW strategies. From the overall outcome, the groundwater investigation zone orderly into five classes called as very good, good, moderate, poor and very poor. This research to recommended that great potential zone of groundwater arise in the areas of south west north central part of study area in the Coimbatore and Palakkad districts. The result showed that converse distance weightage technique offers an effective tool for understanding groundwater possible regions for appropriate growth and management of water level resources in different hydrogeological surroundings.
