Preparation of Regional Plans

Regional plan preparation is one of the urban applications using medium and high satellite data. In 1999, regional land use for National Capital Region (NCR) was prepared using IRS LISS III satellite data at 1:50,000 scale which was a major input for preparation of Regional Plan-2021.

In 2012, for mid-review of Regional Plan-2021, regional Land use at 1:50,000 scale was prepared and updated and landuse change analysis for 1999-2012 was also provided to National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB). These inputs were used by the study groups to formulate and review the planning policies for development of NCR. In 2013, additional six new districts have been added to the NCR and Regional Land use for the same is being prepared using Resourcesat-2 satellite data
