The use of Geographic Information System has been a good solution for database management due to the fact that Geographical information system has the ability to store, manipulate, analyze and display graphical in-formation that has been referenced to a location on the earth. With the aid of Geographic Information System, the research was able to produce a map showing the AASHTO soil classification system, plastic limit, shrinkage limit plasticity index, percentage fine, percentage sand, percentage gravel, specific gravity, optimum moisture content, elevation and maximum dry density on a thematic map of Federal Polytechnic, Ile-Oluji campus which could be of assistance during the infrastructural development of the institution and also help in producing information which could be of help in the engineering decisions of the institution.
