Water is an age-long inevitable resource of life of man and is available in limitless quantity in man’s environment ranging from the salty oceans to the fresh-water Rivers, underground water and rainfall. This study x-rayed the mapping of groundwater potential of Ado Ekiti, the using Remote Sensing & GIS techniques. Various thematic layers were produced from different datasets using Erdas Imagine and ArcGIS 10.3 software. The six (6) thematic maps that was prepared were reclassified, weights assigned to the various maps according to their degree of influence from 0 to 100%, and integrated to produce the groundwater potential map of the study area. The result showed that the groundwater potential is mostly high at the South-West to the North-West and North central of Ado Ekiti. Low groundwater potential was indicated in the south eastern part.
