UAV & Geo-informatics

Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle (UAV) or Drones usage have increased rapidly in vast number of fields ranging from quick disaster management, crop estimation & Damage Assessment, capturing of imageries, inspections and monitoring of utilities, town planning, traffic management and surveillance of inter-state people’s movement to name a few. Application of UAV has been incorporated in Remote Sensing for effective Real Time Mapping, Survey and Monitoring Activities with High Spatial and Spectral Resolution Data. Uav data can be applied in combination with satellite data to produce High Resolution (HR) Images of interested areas which has in turn enabled to gather detailed Spatial Information in studying unplanned settlements. UAVs can perform an efficient survey for Disaster prone or physically inaccessible areas, quick damage Assessment of Landslides, floods and earthquake for enabling relief measurements.

In recent past, the State Remote Sensing Application Centre (SRSAC), Arunachal Pradesh has also introduced Quadcopter Drones (DJI Matrice-100) that can be controlled remotely within 2 km and has a flying time of 40 minutes, Fixed Wing VTOL etc for mapping urban areas, road alignment studies, 3D modelling of important places in capital region including large scale mapping for agriculture, land parcel, public amenities etc. Under this Division, we are catering the needs of different agencies using GIS based web application, mobile applications etc for monitoring of infrastructures, resolving public’s grievances etc.
