Planning is an art of making provision at present to satisfy future needs based upon past trends present situation and projection into the future. School planning is therefore a means of ensuring coherent development that will foster promotion of efficient and orderly utilization and allocation of land. School planning analyses the potentialities for development, evolve proposals backed–up with implementation framework for action. The research methods and materials used involve the use of both primary and secondary data. The primary data used where the field survey data collected using a dual frequency global positioning system (GPS). The secondary data were the Jimeta base map and the satellite image (quick birth image) used for the work. The whole research process involve data collection, data input, data manipulation, data analysis, production of Geographic information system models and data output using Geographic information system software. The proposed master plan was design and produced according to planning standards and specifications, recommendation were made in form of proposal as shown on the proposed master plan design

Key words: Geographic information system, planning, master plan, remote sensing, georeferencing, digitizing.
