Population demands power generation and industrial applications for secure energy due to fulfilling basic requirements. It causes land cover changes; produces destruction of environment, geological resources and biological resources. This impact can be examined by using geospatial applications; remote sensing (RS) and geographical information system (GIS). Present review based on the role of geospatial technology in vegetation mapping, biodiversity conservation and land use land cover (LULC) analysis. This review focused on the utility of geospatial technology in vegetation mapping, in an analysis of land use land cover as well as the correlation between land cover change and destruction of biodiversity. However geological resources are the raw material of development, due to mankind cannot admit defeat on it. As per this paper, it is concluded that astute use of geological resources, ecological restoration, urban development planning and eco- friendly substitute and alternatives must provide the answer of sustainable development.
