This chapter describes the importance of Geographic Information Systems in sustaining water resources in Nigeria. Water is a central resource and an indispensable ingredient for all human activities. Nigeria as a country is naturally endowed with abundant surface and groundwater resources yet the effective and efficient management of these resources has so far remained elusive. There is an increasing awareness that water resources exist in limited quantities and the available supply varies considerably during the course of a year. As a result, it calls for an urgent need to find ways of saving, reusing and recycling as well as developing geographic information methodologies to improve water resources.
