Preparation of district level resource profile using GIS concepts is the primary activity at the GIS
Centers set up in selected districts of the country. Capable of providing insights into the endowments and problems of the districts, these data inventories act as information support to the local user agencies and functionaries. Staff from the line departments are exposed to usage of computers and databases through hands-on training programmes and Workshops
organized from time to time. Existence of the Centers at the districts facilitates sustained interaction and ensures data flow between the
Centers and the local user agencies.
Each GIS Center is equipped with the requisite hand ware and software facilities for building the data inventories. Local academic/research institutions provide necessary scientific and technical back up to the
Centers. The required administrative and infrastructural support are provided by the district authorities.
