Natural Resource Mapping for Development Plan Using Geospatial Technology

Manish K. Tiwari


Geospatial technology includes three different technologies that are all related to mapping features on the surface of the earth. These three technology systems are RS (Remote sensing), GIS (Geographical Information System) and GPS (Global Positioning System).Geospatial technology and its scope of applications have undergone significant change since its advent. It has now been universally accepted as the most important modern tool for mapping and monitoring of various natural resources as well as amenities and infrastructure. The huge and voluminous spatial database generated from various remote sensing platforms needs proper management like storage, retrieval, manipulation and analysis to extract desired information, which is beyond the capability of human brain. This is where the computer-aided GIS technology came into existence. A GIS with major inputs from remote sensing satellites for natural resource management must be able to handle the spatio-temporal data, supporting spatio-temporal quarries and other spatial operations. Software and the computer-based tools are designed to make things easier to the user and to improve the efficiency and quality of information processing tasks. The Bina region has attracted the attention of the planners from the beginning of Five Year Plans for industrial development. A number of projects were carried out in individual districts (Sagar, Vidisha, Guna and Ashoknagar) which also gave fruitful results, but no serious efforts have been made for the entire region. No efforts were made to use geospatial technologies like remote sensing, GIS, GPS to prepare a well structured computerized database without which it is very different to retrieve, analyses and compare data for monitoring as well as for planning the developmental activities in future.
