Abstract: Dengue is one of the prevalent diseases present even in this technology-driven society, diseases that are rampant in earlier as prevalent diseases are compromised can address through the latest research. Dengue is mainly caused due to Aedes Ageypti mosquito mostly breeds around the houses of the residents precisely with improper storage of water and ill-conditioned places that enhance the ability of the mosquito to maintain high breeding rate and prevail the disease. This study utilizes the land use/cover (LULC) application to develop the decision rules using Boolean overlay operations that can generate the risk maps using on the factors Dense Vegetation, Sparse Vegetation, Water bodies and urban area cover [19]. These risk factors are generated using polygon overlay and further categorized into high-risk, moderate, and low risk depending upon the vulnerability of the region. The study is conducted in the Guntur Urban of state Andhra Pradesh, wherein the LULC scenarios are investigated by using Google earth imagery [1] for Guntur urban, Andhra Pradesh.
