The Assignment involved GIS based development of Hydro Geological Atlas of Bhadrak District for Central Ground Water Board (CGWB) SE Region with objectives to disseminate the ground-water information to the public for better and efficient utilization of ground water resources by the public. GIS based approach was undertaken to develop the base map as well as the thematic maps layers based on the information available with CGWB. The GIS database was composed to develop a logically organized Atlas with the map plates appropriately indexed to facilitate information search.
The GIS based Ground Water Atlas helped in
- Visual representation of the base map as well as the thematic map layers for better understanding/ appreciation of the location specific ground water situation
- Well organized/ properly documented Atlas of international standard for quick information access and presentations
