ABSTRACT The mosquitos nuisance becomes major problems in the metropolitan cities in India now days. The endemic situation of vector borne diseases VBDs and the sporadic of such diseases known as malaria filariasis JE dengue and chikungunya have been most important challenging problems in the urban settlements now days in India. The Arc View 3.2 Arc View Spatial analysis and Arc View image analyst GIS was used for creating a systematic grids on 2.5 km interval for fixing the UV adult traps for collecting the optimum vector mosquitoes in the domestic and peripheral domestic areas in the city. The GIS based 2.5km X 2.5km grid map was overlaid on the Pondicherry town digital map on 150000 scale. GARMIN 12XL GPS was used for site selection for fixing the adult UV traps in the inter section or nearby inter section of the grids points. The of Anopheles genus Culex genus and Aedes genus vector mosquitoes were collected every day using normal light adult trap and UV light adult trap and it was transferred to MS excel work sheet for mapping and analysis. The GIS was used to analysis and recommended for control activities and management of the present situation of mosquito nuisance in the metropolitan cities.
