With study areas in lower reaches of Cau river, existing the problems of pollution, environmental degradation and environmental disaster. Therefore, efforts to counteract this problem include environmental protection and environmental resources management, towards sustainable development. Thus, the objective of this paper is to buid a GIS database and environmental quality map in these areas (include 6 districts in lower reaches of Cau river). At the same time, the built datase and maps will provide the important information to the managers have a more complete picture of managed areas and can more readily make decision for environmental management and environmental impact assessment.
