Space based Information Support for Decentralised Planning at Panchyayat level (SIS-DP)
About the Project:
Space based Information Support for Decentralised Planning at Panchyayat level (SIS-DP) is an Indian national initiative of preparing basic spatial layers useful in planning process at grassroot levels as per 73rd, 74th constitutional amendment of local self governance. NRSC (National Remote Sensing Centre) is the lead centre to execute the project in collaboration with various State Remote Sensing Centres. For the first time an all India mosaic of high resolution ortho products and DEM from Cartosat-1 and Resourcesat data was prepared and basic thematic layers at 1:10K scale viz. LU/LC, drainage, settlements, transportation network, slope and aspect were prepared and relevant collateral data useful in planning exercise was also integrated. Under Phase II, this project shall be implemented shortly with a enhanced scope of updating geodatabase with latest high resolution remote sensing data and spatial data analytics to generate simple & ready to use geospatial products and services at Grampanchayats. The geodatabase, products and services prepared under this project are expected to be disseminated through Bhuvan geoportal.
