Crop Acreage and Production Estimation (CAPE)
Crop Acreage and Production Estimation (CAPE) Project was sponsored by Space Applications Centre, ISRO, Ahmedabad and was executed by Chhattisgarh Council of Science & Technology. The project has now culminated into FASAL, a operational unit Mahnalobis National Crop Forecast Centre (MNCFC) under Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers welfare, Government of India. Crop Acreage and Production Estimation for Major Crops Kharif Rice (paddy) was completed using RADARSAT-SCANNAR data to generate the crop census in advance for estimation of production and acreage before the harvest of crop from 2002 to 2008. This data is helpful for farmers, planners and decision makers.
National Wasteland Updating Mission
Wasteland updating Mission, National Remote Sensing Centre, Department of Space, Govt. of India, Hyderabad has approved wasteland Atlas updation project for Durg, Dhamtari, Raipur and Mahasamund District of Chhattisgarh State and was executed by the council. The objective of this project was to prepare the updated wasteland maps of these districts using Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS) LISS-III precision corrected data of year 2003 and also detect changes using earlier database. The project was a part of National Natural Resource Census under NNRMS, NRSC, ISRO, Hyderabad.
Groundwater Prospect Mapping under RGNDWM Phase -IV
Under the Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission (RGNDWM) Project, state wise ground ater prospects maps (seam less mosaics) were prepared for entire State (covering 202 effective maps) on 1:50,000 scale using Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) series of satellite data (1C, 1D & Resourcesat). All the maps available in Bhuvan portal as bhuvan-bhujal in application sector. The possible ground water sources were delineated for drinking within the radius of 1.5 km covering for all habitations. These maps show the way for narrowing down the areas for selection of suitable sites for bore well/tube well and Identification of recharge structures. So far 80-85% success rate was received from state line departments who involved ground water resource development.
Application of Remote Sensing & GIS in Sericulture Development Phase-I
The project was sponsored by NESAC, ISRO Government of India and being executed with collaboration of Central Silk Board. The project included identification and mapping of potential areas for mulberry and non-mulberry sericulture development on1:50000 scale, to develop Sericulture Information Linkage & Knowledge System (SILK) for the selected two districts of Chhattisgarh i.e. Raigarh and Bastar. The beneficiaries include sericulture extension officials, farmers/ sericulturists at the grass-root level, Self-Help Groups, financial institutions like bank and Co-operative Societies, State Sericulture Directorates, Regional Development Offices and Central Research Laboratories/ Institutes of Central Silk Board(CSB). Important deliverables of the project was district-wise maps and estimates of area suitable for developing silkworm food plants; report summarizing the area estimates and names of Villages/ Panchayats/ Blocks suitable for sericulture in each district.
National Geomorphological and Lineament Mapping Project
The project on "Geomorphological and Lineament Mapping of Chhattisgarh on 1:50000 scale" has been completed. Geomorphological & Lineament maps both were prepared on 1:50000 scale for entire Chhattisgarh state using Satellite data along with Ground truth data collection. The digital database of maps in GIS environment has been submitted to National Remote Sensing Centre, Dept. of space, Govt. of India, Hyderabad (The sponsoring organization), subsequently the digital database of maps has been uploaded in Bhuvan Geoportal of NRSC, ISRO.

Space Based Information Support for Decentralized Planning (SIS-DP)
The project was initiated in Nov 2010 and completed on March 2017. Chhattisgarh has been the 1st State in Central India and 5th in the entire country to complete the processing (Dec 2013) and upload the entire state orthorectified merged satellite data product on Bhuvan portal.
The concept of decentralized planning at gross root level is enabled by 73rd Constitutional Amendment under Eleventh Schedule (Article-23G). Up-to-date and reliable spatial information on various resources themes, along with the field level attributes and the participation of local people are the fundamental components for planning and implementation of various developmental programmes. For this endeavor, resource data on 1:10,000 scale is essential for scientifically depicting village level spatial information. High resolution satellite imagery from Cartosat-1/2 (PAN) and Resourcesat-1 LISS-IV has become proven source for generating resources themes on 1:10,000 scale for the entire country in a virtual seamless manner. At the instance of Planning Commission, Government of India, ISRO/DOS has taken this task of supporting state centers in creating, updating, development of tools and its dissemination for planning at grassroots level. This programme on "Spatial Information System for Decentralized Planning (SIS-DP)" is being taken up in mission mode. In nutshell, it is envisaged to involve state identified departments/centers as partners in this mission.
- Separate modules are being made available on bhuvan portal for various development departments for geotagging and planning development activities in the state.
- Major Stakeholders State Departments shall be Agriculture & Fisheries, Panchayat & Rural Development, Education, Irrigation, Forest, Home, CHiPS, Health & Family Welfare, PHED, Directorate of Geology and Mining, Transport.
- National and State level mechanism is being involved for dissemination of the information (created under the project) to different level of hierarchy within departments and state government. Presently the data is being disseminated through BHUVAN and to IWMP for project execution.
- Schedule of regular updation of the RS & GIS datasets has been worked out at national level and shall have to be executed by the Chhattisgarh Council of Science and Technology.
- State Government Departments shall serve as partner institutions, and shall be stakeholders for providing relevant datasets as per the project mandate.

DGPS Survey using High Resolution Satellite Image for the Precise Boundary Demarcation in Chhattisgarh State
Council has been identified as DGPS survey agency by Different Department, Government of Chhattisgarh. The DGPS surveys are carried out:
- To assess the present situation (actual possession) of the pillars and boundary, the survey has been carried out by dual frequency DGPS to first transfer the established GCP to temporary GCP's within the area by way of extension from nearest GCP, through RTK mode of observation. Subsequent observations on each boundary pillar of the area of interest has been undertaken taking reference from the temporary GCP's so established.
- Precise geo-coordinate of the pillars in the Boundary has been taken for all the pillars of the AOI using dual frequency DGPS in RTK mode from the temporary GCP.
- Then boundary vector in the form of shape file are prepared using the coordinates of the pillars in geographic lat. /long as well as UTM projection with WGS 84 spheroid and datum.
The surveyed boundary shape file from DGPS survey, geo-referenced cadastral village boundary, geo-referenced AOI boundary are superimposed on the image using GIS software accuracy analysis work is also carried out. The area is calculated and statistics of mine area are generated for different departments.
