A map is one of the final products of surveying. This is of many types and uses. A digital map of primary schools is a thematic map which shows the location, distribution, the number of private and public schools in a given area and other relevant information. At the present, such a map for Kaduna is not available. This project aims at producing a digital map showing the location of all private and public primary schools within Kaduna metropolis to aid planning and decision making. The project was carried out with the aid of handheld GPS receiver as a tool for the field data collection and the use of a digital map of Kaduna town as a base map on which the positions of these schools were plotted. The plotting was done using ArcGIS.
