|Abstract:||Gujarat is a state in Western India. It has an area of 196,024 km2 (75,685 sq. mi) with coastline of 1,600 km (990 mi), most of which lies on the Saurashtra, and a population in excess of 60 million. Gujarat has land area 1, 96,024 square kilometer. Gujarat's major cities include Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, Rajkot, Jamnagar and Bhavnagar. Gujarat is very fast developing state of the country. It has shown extreme growth in its infrastructure in past decade. In 2010, Forbes list of the world's fastest growing cities included Ahmadabad at number 3 after Chengdu and Chongqing from China. Infrastructure development rate in Ahmadabad is very fast. Ahmadabad was also prone to earthquake damage in 2001 and suffered heavy damage due to varying soil conditions. For any safe infrastructure development soil is a base for construction. Geotechnical engineering deals with evolutions of different soil properties. This process of evaluating geo-technical properties is time consuming and costly. Our aim is to study this varying ground condition, synthesize geo-technical attributes, carryout site characterization for the region and development empirical relationship between various sets of engineering properties and putting them on GIS based model so that it can provide a platform to technical persons or agencies to access this indicative geotechnical properties and use them as a guide for their respective work regarding geotechnical investigation It will also guide for making their work plan and arrangement of resources. This will play a pivotal role in providing indicative geo-technical properties of Gujarat region|
