Abstract. A major concern in groundwater exploration is to determine a precise location of the groundwater resources. The geospatial technology such as UAV mapping, precise GPS surveying and GIS data management could be integrated with other geospatial information to augment the groundwater exploration. The aim of this research project is to support groundwater exploration at UTM, Johor Bahru campus by employing the geospatial approach. In doing so, the aerial photo captured by using UAV and GPS will be utilised to support geology and geophysics data collection. Subsequently, subsurface information such as lithology, stratigraphy and geological structures have been used to form the subsurface profile. Afterward, development of the groundwater geospatial database had commenced by using a GIS approach. It is expected that by integration of geospatial technology in groundwater exploration works will help to identify the location of potential groundwater zone in the study area.
