State pact with Isro to tackle natural calamities The recent memorandum of understanding between AP government with Isro’s National Remote Sensing Centre will help the state get the muchneeded customised realtime space based inputs on natural disasters like floods, cyclones, forest fires, earthquakes, landslides and tsunamis for disaster management Support State pact with Isro to tackle natural.
State pact with Isro to tackle natural calamities,Government Help
The AP government had signed three MoUs with the Indian Space Research Organisation for the deployment of space technology in governance and development of the State. The MoUs signed include utilisation of geospatial technology in meteorological services, disaster management and Water resources manages.
Spatial technology in meteorological Services:
THE MoUS signed include utilisation Of geo-Spatial technology in meteorological Services, disaster management and Water resources management ment. With respect to meteorological services, an andr. oid mobile app Andhra Pradesh Varuna’ is being issued as part of the MoU.State pact with Isro to tackle natural This app makes use of automatic Weather Stations and groundwater piezometers, installed acr. OSS the state, as Well as weather forecast data from Isro to provide weather parameters, The Other MoU was on development of webbased geo-portal AP State Water Resources Information and Management
Water Resources Department:
System signed between the state’s water resources department and NRSC. The APWRIMS Will host all the spatial and nonspatial data of Water resources sector of the state.
It expected to facilitate seamless ingestion of real-time field data, facilitate Water resources inventory through satellite observations and validated models, constitute decision support tools, water audit, etc., NRSC Would provide requisite technical knowhow, training and guidance to the water resource department. AP has been extensively using space based inputs for Societal applications and these MoUs reiterate its commitment to extend these applications with the help of ISRO, a scientist of the Organisation said.
