In order to detect the fluoride concentration of the ground water in Jagalur taluk of Davanagere district in Karantaka, and also for its mapping, a pilot project was taken up by choosing 27 bore wells from different locations of the study area. Ground water samples were drawn from the selected 27 bore wells for both pre-monsoon and post-monsoon seasons and fluoride was detected as per the standard methodology. Locations and altitudes of these bore wells were also obtained using GPS instrument. Fluoride concentration and its spatial distribution mapping has been done using GIS tools for the study area. Based on that, the study area has been divided into four zones of fluoride concentration.
