Gary R Watmough’s PhD explored the spatial associations between socioeconomic variables like female literacy and employment in the non-agricultural sector derived from a subset of the 2001 Indian National Census and environmental metrics. The study was based on freely available remotely sensed satellite sensor data - Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) in Assam.

Past studies have found associations between land and poverty, however these studies are usually focused on small areas using ground based studies. This research explored and quantified associations between socioeconomic conditions derived from national census data and environmental metrics derived from remotely sensed imagery from Earth observation satellites on an extensive spatial scale, covering over 14000 villages in Assam in north-east India.

Guest post by: Dr. J.R. Sharma, Indian Space Research Organisation

Dear India Water Portal readers,

I am happy to inform you that the web-enabled Water Resources Information System of India (WRIS) has been launched on March 22, 2012 (World Water Day) by Shri R.C. Jha, Chairman, Central Water Commission, New Delhi.This is a joint venture of the Indian Space Research Organisation and Central Water Commission, and is still a work-in-process. It will have more data and tools, as we progress towards the completion of this project.

Please register on the portal to get updates and to get full access to data and facilities of the WRIS Web-GIS.

The project 'Strengthening indigenous people’s response to multiple-use water services', supported by ARGHYAM takes people’s multiple water needs as the starting point in identifying opportunities within the water limitations & changing environment, in planning and design of existing cropping and water resource systems for up-gradation.

The interactive GIS mapping of wetlands and MUS intervention sites is one of the outputs of the project. 

Interactive layers are present on the left panel of the pdf file.

The entire modified and updated series of state geology and mineral maps by Geological Survey of India (GSI) is available here.

The Geological Survey of India (GSI) has been preparing state geology and mineral maps as a part of its Miscellaneous Publications series from time to time. During the span of three and a half decades since the first edition was published, enormous knowledge has been added in the sphere of geology of the areas necessitating revisions. The entire modified and updated series published at various points of time is available here.

This flood hazard atlas for the State of Assam is based on an analysis of ten years of multi-temporal satellite datasets acquired during the flood seasons of 1998-2007.

Assam represents a highly flood-prone region characterized by severe hazards of floods. Although occurrence of flood has been an age-old phenomenon in the riverine areas of this region, the extent of damage caused by floods has increased significantly in recent years.

This publication presents the updated database and status of wetlands, compiled in an atlas format.

CoverThis book by Space Applications Centre (SAC), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is an outcome of the project on National Wetland Inventory and Assessment (NWIA) . Increasing concern about how our wetlands are being influenced had led to formulation of the project entitled to create an updated database of the wetlands of India.

Wetlands defined as areas of land that are either temporarily or permanently covered by water exhibit enormous diversity according to their genesis, geographical location, water regime and chemistry. They are one of the most productive ecosystems and play crucial role in hydrological cycle. Utility-wise, wetlands directly and indirectly support millions of people in providing services such as storm and flood control, clean water supply, food, fiber and raw materials, scenic beauty, educational and recreational benefits. Thus, their identification and protection becomes very important.
