Water Resources

Water Resources

Infrastructure forms an integral part for growth and development of any region. Satellite images, owing to their spatial, temporal and spectral characteristics, provide valuable information about the land-use/ land-cover (present and past), existing infrastructure, terrain characteristics etc., which are vital to facilitate infrastructure planning, monitoring and management in a timely and cost-effective manner. Geographical Information System (GIS) with customised decision support tools facilitate integrated analysis of different datasets and their visualisation.
