Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing

The Ministry of Rural Development is planning to take up a GIS project under its ICT Pilot Project initiative. The project is under conceptualization stage


For effective management and assessment of Natural Resources


A GIS-based Asset Management System to:

  • Maintain up-to-date inventory of permissible created assets
  • Perform periodic asset assessments & summarize the results using measurement scales
  • Identify soil layers and fertility levels
  • Keep ahead of the maintenance curve


GIS - help to evolve:

  • Appropriate methodology for collection, collation, storage and processing of data on natural resources in a given region & in totality
  • Standardized formats for natural resources and socio-economic data in an integrated manner to establish linkage among various hierarchical units


To utilize information for planning and development
 

  • A pilot to be started which will use the remote sensing technology which will be able to capture the status of work site before the start of work and after the completion of the work


Current Status:

Mahatma Gandhi NREGA is under process to prepare a strategy for nationwide rollout and evolve parameters for standardization with an objective to link GIS with decentralized planning, preparing labour budget, programme implementation and asset monitoring & evaluation.

In this regard a GIS Expert Group and a Sub Group has been constituted.
