The Geo-Centre at CSKHPAU

The Centre for Geo-Informatics Research and Training (Geo-Centre) was established in the 80th meeting of the Board of Management of CSK Himachal Pradesh Agricultural University held on November 8, 2003. The Centre was created with the mission to integrate the issues of Research, Teaching, Training and Consultancy in natural resource management, pollution, natural hazards, systems simulation, decision support systems and global climate change using geo-information technology. The Geo-centre has a multidisciplinary faculty trained at national and international level to carry out research and development activities in the field of Geo-Informatics. A state of the art research laboratory is currently catering to the needs of the research and development work that is being carried out at the centre. This facility provides capacity for higher end computing applications such as remote sensing, geo-information technology, software development and systems simulation to the faculty, and students involved in these applications.

There is a considerable amount of data available on mountain resources and the environment, but the data are often dispersed among many agencies and cannot be quickly compiled for multisectoral, problem-oriented analyses. Thus the ability to respond to the information needs of planners and decision-makers has been limited. The strength of geo-information technology lies in its ability to integrate data from various resource disciplines, using a common geographical boundary as a reference.
