Sensors Used

Satellite data from various IRS series of satellites viz., IRS LISS I, II,PAN / Resourcesat LISS III, LISS IV, and High resolution Cartosat-1 PAN data were used to map soil resources, land use land cover and land degradation problem at different scales from 1:250,000 to 1:12,500 scales.   Besides, attempts are also being made to digitally classify the soil resources and to map soil properties like texture, organic carbon, inorganic carbon and bulk density using digital mapping techniques as well as nutrient status using GIS based point interpolation techniques.
