This research paper is focused on the analysis and development of a land information system for the different soil types in Bauchi State and their capabilities in enhanced crop productivity, which covers the whole of Bauchi State .the execution of this project, was carried out in two different stages namely: The design stage and the implementation stage. The development of the LIS was facilitated by obtaining a clear and properly identified map of the study area, which was eventually scanned

The graphics were linked with a created spatial database; the developed system was then put to the test by carrying out a number of GIS operation and analysis called queries (Kufoniyi, 1998) . The queries were then generated to help in the identification and differentiation of the various soil types existing in Bauchi as well as their capabilities as regards to the types of crops planted in Bauchi state in other to device means for which production can further be enhanced.
