Abstract: The research focuses on Kabul River Basin (KRB) water resources infrastructure, management and development as there are many dams already in the basin and many dams are planned and are being studied with multi-purposes objectives such as power generation, irrigation and providing water to industry and domestics. KB has been centralized all water resources related information in an integrated relational geo-database this KB is centralized repository for information river basin management with the main objectives of optimizing information collection, retrieval and organization. In addition, in this paper information and characteristics of the KRB has been presented such as drainage network or hydrology, irrigation, population, climate and surface pattern other necessary features of the basin by the use of GIS in order to invest and implement infrastracture projects. The first step in doing any kind of hydrologic modeling involves delineating streams and watersheds, and getting some basic watershed properties such as area, slope, flow length, stream network density, etc. Traditionally this was (and still is) being done manually by using topographic/contour maps. With the availability of Digital Elevation Models (DEM) and GIS tools, watershed properties can be extracted by using automated procedures. The processing of DEM to delineate watersheds is referred to as terrain pre-processing. Besides that, it produced the necessary thematic maps, base maps and other detailed maps for illustrating of basin characteristics and features GIS Based.
