Workshop on ‘use of space technology inputs in Nagaland’

One-day workshop on the use of space technology inputs in Nagaland was conducted for nodal officers of line departments on the implementation of the plan of action at Nagaland GIS & Remote Sensing Centre (NGISRSC) Kohima, Tuesday.
According to a DIPR report, speaking at the inaugural session, principal secretary and development commissioner, Amardeep Singh Bhatia said the plan of action has been finalized after consultation with the North Eastern Space Applications Centre (NESAC).
He said the GIS cell has been a database for Nagaland which needs to be carried forward and added that it has developed initiatives with expert organizations such as NESAC and ISRO.
Bhatia stated that proper geospatial data could help in the preparation of projects and help monitor the progress of the projects. He also said that satellite technology could help in proper monitoring of projects in remote areas which are otherwise difficult to reach due to the rough terrain of the State.
He said if proper technology was used by various departments, there would be ample data that could help in optimal usage of resources and benefits would reach the maximum number of people.
Bhatia then expressed contentment that Nagaland, through the use of technology, was in progress with the rest of the states.
At the workshop, technical session on “Indian Space Programme” was taken up by director, NESAC, Department of Space, government of India, Dr. S. P. Aggarwal while project director, NGISRSC, Er. Mhathung Kithan shared “Use of Space Based technology for Governance and Decision Making: A Decade of Service to the State of Nagaland”.
Sessions on “natural resources management”, “agriculture and allied activities” and “infrastructure, planning & technology diffusion, societal applications” were taken up by the Nagaland GIS & Remote Sensing Centre (NGISRSC).
The workshop was organized by the Nagaland GIS & Remote Sensing Centre, Planning & Coordination Department, Government of Nagaland.
