Tata Power Limited has established a power plant near the Trombay in Moharastra. The assignment involved assisting the Tata Engineering Consultants in development of a land use map for obtaining environmental clearance from MoEF for extension of the power plant units. The process involved selection and procurement of the high resolution satellite images (panchromatic Cartosat-I and Multspectral Resourcesat LISS-IV) from NRSC, Hyderabad. The Class-III land use pattern was derived from high resolution satellite imagery within 10km radius of the project area. The land use map along with the base rectified satellite image was composed to prepare the maps in specified layouts.
The GIS based land use mapping helped in
- Generation of land use pattern as per the current land development status obtained through the recent satellite imagery
- Decision support system for planning and development within the industrial periphery area
