Geographic Information System (GIS) in Jalanidhi

At present GIS (Geographic Information system) is being used in Jalanidhi for mapping the assets created under the project. The coordinates of the assets are captured using handheld GPS devices and maps are prepared depicting these in a user-friendly base map. The shape files of the assets are prepared and stored so that these can be used while preparing an integrated data base of water resources in the panchayath. Simultaneously web linked maps are prepared using open source software and the links are shared with the panchayaths and other stake holders of the project. These GIS maps contain the static data of all schemes, ground water recharge structures and sanitation activities implemented, along with the contact details of office bearers of concerned beneficiary groups. Preparation of GIS maps of Batch I GPs have already been completed and that of Batch II are nearing completion.
