Water Bodies Fraction

Water Bodies consists of all surface water bodies viz. reservoirs, irrigation tanks, lakes, ponds, and rivers / streams. The area under water bodies is dynamic in natures and hence multi-temporal satellite data was used for monitoring. An automated extraction algorithm developed is used for quick processing of satellite data acquired from Resourcesat -1, Resourcesat-2 AWiFS sensors (56m spatial resolution) which enables the generation of water body layer.

Fortnightly Water bodies Fraction information at during 20014-2018 are hosted on Bhuvan-Water bodies Fraction.
