About the organization:
Human civilization has almost mastered to harness natural resources. So much so, instead of being part of ecosystem we have occupied centre stage of ecosystem and started modifying the ecosystem as we like. However, we must appreciate natural resources are not infinite. Growing need/greed and pace of utilization has put us in critical situation. India in particular has vast natural resources. Still due to dependency of large population on natural resources, we see scarcity/ mismanagement and conflicts. We need an efficient method which can provide us timely and accurate information on resources utilization pattern in time and space. The importance of remote sensing for the socio-economic development of nations has been recognized since the era of aerial photography in the early part of 20th century. The advent of space borne platforms on unmanned satellites has provided unprecedented opportunities to study earth surface features, physical processes, natural resources and environment. Therefore, remote sensing from aerospace media has become the most valuable tool for management and monitoring of natural resources and environment.
