Success Stories

Crime Mapping & Analysis

The State GIS & Remote Sensing Centre has taken up study of Crime mapping involving processing of spatially referenced crime data in order to display visually in an output that is informative to the user, and Crime analysis processes applied on relevant information indicate the crime patterns. The integration of GIS in crime analysis allows spatial analysis of data to identify, apprehend, and prosecute suspects, it also aids more proactive measures through effective allocation of resources and better policy setting. A case study of Dimapur municipal area was done and crime hotspot analysis was carried out in order to get a bigger picture of the statistically significant areas of Crimes in Dimapur. Administrative and operational personal can use the result of analysis to prevent and suppress of criminal activities and also for investigation aims. Crime mapping and spatial analysis of crime are recognized as powerful tools for the study and control of crime, because crime maps help police identify problems at the micro level

Geomorphology and Lineament Mapping

A joint initiative with Geological Survey of India and National Remote Sensing Centre/ Indian Space Research Organization. Geomorphology and lineament mapping of Nagaland state was taken up by Nagaland GIS & RS Centre, Planning & Co-ordination Department, Nagaland jointly with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and Geological Survey of India (GSI). Geomorphic units associated with structural origin have been classified as high, moderate and low dissected according to concentration of drainage lines and joints. Within this dissected hills and valley features such as Cuesta, Strike Ridge, Hogback, Intermontane valley, Monocline, Strath terrace and Scarp have been identified. Hogbacks and cuesta has been differentiated on the basis of slope geometry. Strike ridge are common features observed along Schuppen Belt which is a long narrow linear belt of imbricate thrust slices. Intermontane valleys are found in parts of the Schuppen belt/ Inner Fold Belt (IFB), these extensive gentle sloping feature surrounded by mountains or mountain ranges are developed due to tectonism followed by erosion. The geomorphic units of denudational origin include Pediment, Pediplain, Piedmont slope, residual hill, and valley fill has been identified. Interpretation of lineaments is done in conjunction with other diagnostic criteria such as down-cutting of channel along lineament, abrupt change of river course, presence of dry channel in an active river course, linear ridges, scarp surface, linear alignment of water bodies and straight channel segments. The axis of the Kohima synclinorium trending NE-SW has been identified as part of the lineament map generation. Both geomorphic and structural lineaments such as Scarp parallel, drainage parallel, Ridge parallel, Break-in slope, Fault, Joint/Fracture and Shear Zone have been mapped.

Village Resource Mapping

Resource Maps provides the basic details of natural resources and the development activities in spatial format. The mapping usually is done in cadastral scale. Settlements, existing infrastructure and assets, land cover, land use, water resources and areas of specific interest of the village are spatially mapped. The output will serve as baseline information for planning and develo pment activities particularly for the village level management authority and by the Government at large. It will also serve as the base layers for further GIS Analysis.The local communities as users of localized natural resources tend to accumulate firsthand knowledge and experience about status and functioning of such resources. It is in this light, the approach of the present study is so designed where knowledge sharing and merging of space based information system and technology, together with participatory appraisal of natural resources are given prime importance. Village Resource Map Series aims in building a strong geospatial database in the village level for perspective planning and development. The usage of GIS and Remote Sensing techniques would improve the accuracy of the data and information.

The usage of this technology will improve the mapping process that will enable several applications for land and resource planning, development and management.

Vehicle Tracking System

The ongoing web based Vehicle tracking System enables the state government to keep track of the government vehicles on a detailed map. Vehicles are tracked using GPS technology in real time which allows personnel to view vehicle position on a map in real time. The vehicle tracking system combines the installation of an electronic device in a vehicle, with purpose-designed computer software at operational base in the center to track the vehicle's location, collecting data in the process from the field and deliver it to the base of operation. The vehicle tracking systems use GPS technology for locating the vehicle, and are viewed on GIS maps via the Internet. Major constituents of the GPS based tracking are GPS tracking device: The device fits into the vehicle and captures the GPS location information at regular intervals to a central server. GPS tracking server: The tracking server has three responsibilities: receiving data from the GPS tracking unit, securely storing it, and serving this information on demand to the user. User interface: The UI determines how one will be able to access information, view vehicle data, and elicit important details from it. The e?ort is expected to combat administrative problem such vehicle theft, proper utilization of the Government vehicles, monitoring of the fleets etc.
