Applications Of Satellite Imagery & Remote Sensing Data

  •  

Remote sensing data provides essential information that helps in monitoring various applications such as image fusion, change detection, and land cover classification. Remote sensing is a key technique used to obtain information related to the earth's resources and environment. What popularized satellite imagery data, is that they can be easily accessed online through various mapping applications like Google Earth and Bing Maps. From being simply able to find, "where is my house" these applications have helped the GIS community in project planning, monitoring disasters and natural calamities, and guiding civil defense people.

Tourist Experience Enhancer App for National Parks – A Booster for Ecotourism

  •  

Need for this app

Many times tourists visiting national parks might not get to see the wildlife they were expected to see. Or they might see few animals but not all the species. Sometimes the guide is also not very keen to provide detailed information about various species. This leads to poor experience for tourist.

Government is also very keen to promote Ecotourism in various National parks of India. There is a need to provide information about National parks, various policies, park timings, booking procedure and rules and regulations.

Building Plan Approval System (BPAS)

  •  

Existing Situation :

Today most of the building plan applications & drawing plans are submitted manually in paper format. Processes related to scrutiny, approval and rejection are carried out manually. Building Plan Approval System (BPAS) involves longer processing time, errors & variance in evaluation, more cost & more resources. Moreover, status tracking by the citizens & department officials becomes difficult & cumbersome with manual process in place. Apart from above, following are also the hurdles inthe building plan approval process.

Researching Coffee Rust Infestation through Remote Sensing and GIS

Remote Sensing and GIS applications have made it relatively easier to monitor the overall health of forests. Various components of forests, like tree heights, diameter and volume of stems, basal area and aboveground biomass can now be easily studied using the advanced remote sensing and GIS technologies. Radar remote sensing is different from visual remote sensing as it uses the microwave (1 mm to 1 m) section of the electromagnetic spectrum to obtain these images of the Earth. Microwave remote sensing is especially useful in areas of high cloud cover as it is able to penetrate through clouds. It is also a vital technique in studying the biophysical characteristics of forests, as the waves are able to penetrate the canopy. Stem volume, tree height and biomass estimation are few of the characteristics that can be easily estimated using microwave remote sensing. The device that emits these wavelengths also records the backscatter that is reflected back after the signal hits the target. Microwaves can penetrate clouds, rain, smoke, forest canopies as well as features below the surface of the Earth. Their ability to penetrate through forest canopies makes microwaves especially useful in the study of biophysical characteristics of forests. The penetrative powers of microwave remote sensing help in gathering data about the forest canopy, the stems present in the forest and the surface and surface cover of forests.
