Project Title: 
NRDMS center for Pilot implementation of GIS applications in local level development and planning

Thematic Area:
Spatial DSS (Primary Education)

District of Jhunjhunun (Rajasthan)
Latitude: 27.60 -- 28.50
Longitude: 75.08 -- 76.12 

Preparation of district resource profiles (infra structural) and their periodic updating.
Developing specific tools for various user departments for information and decision support.
Providing analyzed information to Zilla Parishad, District Rural Development Agency and other development agencies involved in infrastructure.
Training of development and planning administration personnel of the district on use of computer for decision support.
Providing feedback to the primary data getting agencies and software groups.

Every district, state and central government agency is involved at some level in Geographic Information System (GIS) Technology. All of them use maps for planning and development purposes. Some important activities are location/allocation of facilities like schools, hospitals, fire stations, post boxes etc. Another major activity is in generation of routes. Most of GIS software have wide variety of features which are not needed for infrastructure planning applications.
EduSDSS is a tool for Educational Planning. The SDSS would help the planners to effectively plan and monitor various education related developmental schemes. This has been achieved through evaluation of the present education system at village, block and district level. 
Forecasting the requirements of new schools and related resources based on the census data. Locating new schools. Allocating resources like teachers and buildings. Generating reports at the block, village & school level. 
The performance is evaluated using analysis of primary education system at village & school level in terms of various recommended educational indices such as quality, quantity, availability, and accessibility (Figure1, Figure2).
