Geological environment zonation is to divide the areas into relatively homogeneous units based on their natural factors such as hydrology, topography, geology, disasters... to create geoenvironmental units which suit a specific type of exploitation for the purpose of research or regional management. This study presents a process of integrating GIS and remotely sensed data to develop a map of environmental geological zonning for the planning of development of the efective and safety construction sites. Data used in this work include Landsat 8 satellite image classified by application of Fuzzy Logic method to build the map of land use status which includes construction sites, and the GIS data including geology, topography, engineering geology and hydrogeology. The result from this process of integration is the suitability maps of appropriate units for the development of construction sites on the Thi Vai river basin. This map shows 3 different levels of geological environmental condition for development of the construction sites. This result demonstrates the efficiency of the integration of GIS and remote sensing to build tools to assist for the environmental capacity management, for data analysis, and beyond, to identify and incorporate the influencing factors to the subjects of management or research.
