Sponsored by North Eastern Council (NEC) and executed by NESAC, Dept of Space, Government of India, Umiam, Meghalaya in collaborations with State Remote Sensing Centre (SRSACs) of NE region.

Background:

SBIK (state level) is conceptualized to strengthen the planning and monitoring mechanisms of the projects funded by the DoNER Ministry & other Central Government funded projects in NER. SBIK of each state aims to provide state specific geospatial inputs in the form of decision support system (DSS) developed using open source GIS packages & standards. Geospatial based solutions can be developed in an integrated environment to help decision making, strategic planning, effective resource management and operations management. Phase-I version of SBIK on each of the state contains information on land use land cover (LULC), wetlands, wastelands, forest working plan, land degradation map (LDM), roads, drainages, and settlements, soil map on each of the states, ground water prospect map, wetlands, infrastructures, inputs for disaster management support program etc. along with state/district wise statistics in the form of pie chart etc. derived using space technology inputs for satellite data coupled with intense ground truth for different periods and scales. The beneficiaries include the secretaries of states and various line departments within the state such as agriculture, soil, forests, disaster management authority etc.
