Bad choice of construction site or poor number or local geotechnical study test lead to construction ruin; hence the need to have a geotechnical map for each urban area, which will constitute a reference for urban planners. Urban geotechnics is the study of urban land environments to provide a scientific and technical database for rational urban development and land use planning. The aim of this work is to make an inventory of all potential geotechnical problems in the soil bounded by the urban perimeter of Beni Ensar city. So to characterize the soil many geotechnical tests carried out in the laboratory and in situ are analysed. The results of these geotechnical tests are represented geo-spatially using GIS software. The thematic maps obtained will constitute a reference to the planners and the various actors in this field to adapt development plans and types of buildings to the properties of the supporting soil. They will also allow the civil engineering laboratory to optimize the choice of the study method and the types of tests.
