Background:

Under a joint project of Natural Resources Data Management System (NRDMS) of Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, and the Government of Karnataka, Karnataka State Council for Science & Technology (KSCST), Bangalore has developed district level GIS databases to support the process of Local Level Planning at the levels of district, taluk and village. Over the past two decades all the thirty districts of Karnataka State have been covered under NRDMS program. Each District Database contains spatial and attribute data sets useful in local level planning processes in the sectors of Natural Resources, Demography, Agro-economy, Socio-economy and Infrastructure facilities. Respective Zilla Panchayaths and Line Departments have been depending upon the databases for meeting their data requirements. Recently, at the behest of CEO/CPOs of the Zilla Panchayats, the Council has initiated Resource, Infrastructure and Habitation mapping using Geospatial Technologies for Gram Panchayaths / ULB's in Karnataka in few selected districts for informed decision-making.

Activities of district NRDMS centre activities during 2009-10

  • District level user interaction workshops have been conducted on "Web based Geographic Information System" to create awareness among end user in the utility of geospatial database through Internet. During these workshops the utility of the GeoPortal was demonstrated to the end users for planning and management of resources. The Council conducted district level workshops in twenty four districts of the State. The activities of the NRDMS program and the web based GeoPortal evoked good response among the district officials. Several requests were received during the workshop to take up activities utilizing geospatial technologies to developmental programs and also to provide a detailed technical / project reports to plan the resources and infrastructure.

  • The NRDMS Centres have prepared Technical reports containing basic information and arrangements made in Bye-Elections - 2005 as well as Gram Panchayath elections held during 2009-10. The work involved generating Legislative Assembly / Gram Panchayath constituency wise location and jurisdiction of polling stations with numbers and type of polling booths along with route maps to carry polling personnel and materials as required by election authorities, Election Commission and Observers.

  • Crime mapping of several City Municipalities for based on intensity of crime, availability of police stations etc.

  • Development of GIS based district rural road plan for link roads. In several districts the habitations are wide spread, and these habitations are connected to major roads by roads called link roads. This study indicated the current status of various categories of roads, their connectivity to habitations and other related matters regarding the road network of especially coastal districts. Nearly 30% of the road finance goes for road development in these districts. This project is mainly carried out to focus mainly on rural road network connectivity.
