Geo-Spatial Data Bank Division

The Geospatial technology relating to the collection or processing of data that is associated with location and the term Geospatial technology is used to describe the range of modern tools contributing to the geographic mapping and analysis of the earth and human societies. The geospatial technology encompasses the domains of remote sensing satellite data and their potential applications in knowledge base generation and information sharing for meeting the day-to-day needs of our lives. In order to harness the potentials of geospatial data, the main thrust is towards the development and strengthening of tools, techniques and skilled expertise with the capability for disseminating the output products to the grass-root level users in digital format.

Resources / Facilities Available:

  • Databank with different types of maps including topographic sheets, aerial photographs and satellite data procured and used under different projects since inception of the Centre.
  •  Digital database output of different completed projects.
  • Data Dissemination to Different User Departments (Govt./ Pvt./ Academia) as per their Requirements on Pro-Rota Basis in Prescribed Format.
  • Geospatial Data Division is acting as a interface between RSAC-UP Scientists and NRSC, Hyderabad in acquiring Space borne data related to National as well as International Satellites.

The following thrust areas have been identified for taking up future studies-

  • Revival of Dying rivers of Uttar Pradesh.
  • Palaeohydrological studies in Indo-Gangetic plains.
  • Monitoring Surging glacier phenomenon and Glacier Lake Outburst Flood in Himalaya.

Centre’s Data Bank is depository of primary data in the form of Survey of India- Topographical maps to prepare base information , whereas Aerial Photographs and Space borne satellite data act as a secondary information to generate various thematic layers ,which are very necessary to implement various type of scientific projects in the Centre.. To fulfill the requirements of the various projects a Data Bank has been established in the Centre since it’s inception. Data Bank is a depository of about 11517 SOI-Topographical sheets in the form of hard copy including 335 Digital Topographical maps, about 39170 Aerial Photographs as well as (FCC-5767, Digital DVD -3741 data.) about 9508 Satellite Data.
