Abstract: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have been proposed as a means of making information about the systems used to provide urban services more accessible and useful. Urban services that appear to be particularly suitable for GIS include the networks for distribution of water, electricity and natural gas as well as collection of sewage (Borrough, 1986; Taylor, 1991; Jacobs et al., 1993; Douglas, 1995; Brebbia and Pascolo, 1998). In the present study, a geographic information system has been developed for water supply management in urban areas in a user-friendly environment. The basic aim of proposed Water Supply Management System (WSMS) is to facilitate the water works management by helping maintain the records of leaks and repairs; provide customer information service; automatic billing of monthly charges; provide inputs for accounts section; generate contracts, work orders and daily work schedules for crews and assist in many more regular and advanced decisions.
