The pivot of this study was to demonstrate how street guide maps can be produced from remotely sensed data using G IS techniques. Quick bird imagery of 2008 w ith resolution of 0.6 meter was the major source of data while the street guide of Kaduna metropolis produced in 1977 by analogue method of map making was used as base data. During ground truthing identified street names were collated and placed on the map with additional information gotten from the existing street guide. The research work was based on computer interpretation of imageries using AutoCAD 2000i and Survcadd.xml software. On close interpretation of the imageries it was discovered that streets in Kaduna metropolis have metamorphorsised in quantity from 104 in 1977 to 409 in 2008. The use of high resolution imageries for digital production and updating of street guide information is therefore highly recommended.
