Green buildings are sustainable or eco-friendly buildings. They conserve natural resources, reduce reliance on fossil fuels and minimize negative environmental impacts. Green building technologies with the help of computers can improve the quality of life for residents and mitigate the environmental and economic challenges associated with rapid urbanization and resource depletion. Conservation of water is a mandatory requirement of green buildings. The amount of water that is suitable for human consumption is only 0.3%. Many reports predict that by 2030, India's water demand will be double the supply. Groundwater, which constitutes 40% of the country's water supply, is depleting rapidly, with 54% of India's groundwater sources in decline. Different strategies are suggested to reduce the water requirements in buildings and landscaping the areas. The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) claims that techniques including rain gardens, green roofing, rainwater harvesting, recycling, and the reuse of treated wastewater are employed to lower the portable water demand in green buildings. The study discusses the role of computer mapping in water management. The latest graphics processing and display functions are powerful tools and are used in several fields including water conservation. The study put forth that computer intelligence, automation and other characteristics can effectively improve soil and water conservation. The study emphasises the role of computer applications like mapping in water conservation methods followed in green buildings as per IGBC guidelines.
