Karnataka Geographic Information System


Karnataka - GIS (K-GIS), the concept of which was the foresight of the Government of Karnataka and the Karnataka Jnana Aayoga (KJA), is the result of the process of consultation with the line departments of the government on the vision for our entire state. It encompasses developing a broad consultation process which has enabled embedding GIS in different aspects of governance namely, planning and implementation at National/ State/ Local levels, Decision making, Monitoring Development, Identifying gaps in development, bringing responsibility and accountability in governance.


K-GIS is helping in reducing the duplication of GIS efforts in the state, removing redundancy and helping to create an authoritative GIS data entity for all agencies, enterprises and citizens. K-GIS has layers that has been organized from RS images and survey data/maps. Such data is being integrated/fused with MIS/available data records of various departments of the Government.

Soil Health Mission

The mobile application developed under the scheme Soil Health Mission for collecting soil samples in the year 2016-17 was updated and customized with important information for use in 2018-2019, by KSRSAC. It replaces analog positioning of the soil sampling location with digital positioning. It enables preloading of base map and cadastral map of the area of interest with grids for locating the points of soil sample collection. It comes with a grid map showing 10 ha grids 320 m x 320 m and 2.5 ha grids, 160 m x 160 m for rain-fed and irrigated areas of the state respectively to facilitate soil sampling.
KSRSAC cadastral and Bhoomi data Integration

KSRSAC Data: Grid Number, Survey number, Census district code, Taluk code, village code, Bhoomi district code, Taluk code, Hobli code and village code.
Bhoomi Data: Land Code, Hissa Number, Land Extent and Farmer name.
The Department of Agriculture using this technology collected soil samples, analyzed the soils, linked the farmer details and issued soil health cards

Karnataka Election 2018 - Mobile and Web Applications

In view of Karnataka Legislative Assembly Elections of 2018, The Chief Electoral Office envisioned the need, to create a GIS map of all the polling stations (booths) and their respective geographic boundaries for the state. Towards this endeavor, Joint CEO approached KSRSAC to map all the Polling Stations and their electoral boundaries, along with various attribute information of polling stations.They include infrastructure facilities for citizens, location information, area information, voters information, candidate information and more.

Data Collection Methodology:


  • Collection of Polling station list from EC.
  • Identification of polling stations from satellite images along with department officials. The available satellite data (CartoSAT) with KSRSAC used for mapping activities.
  • All the polling stations mapped as a points on layer at the GIS environment.
  • Each polling station point assigned the constituency code and polling station number
  • For each polling station, the boundary associated with the same was identified manually. The support of field officers of the respective town/constituency was taken by the representatives of KSRSAC.
  • The identified boundary was plotted on the GIS environment as a polygon feature.
  • Each polling station boundary polygon was attached to the constituency code and polling station number


Web Application

In order to record, map, manage, monitor and analyze the Election information a web-enabled geographic information system (GIS) was implemented. The GIS is implemented on a secure server at KSDC, the map service is hosted on a GIS Server and the MIS data was loaded onto a SQL database. The web-based GIS application uses a server/client model.

National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO, Govt. of India, in collaboration with partner institutions is preparing ground water quality maps using remote sensing and GIS technology under Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission (RGNDWM) project. The project is being sponsored by the Department of Drinking Water Supply (DDWS), Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD). The KSRSAC has been entrusted with the work pertaining to the State of Karnataka


Objectives
The objective of ground water quality mapping is to create a spatial database on ground water quality using mainly the existing point data available with DDWS, MoRD. The output spatial data is to be in the form of an additional layer showing the spatial distribution of the quality of ground water. The ground water quality information is to be provided in terms of its suitability for human consumption, i.e.1) potable, 2) permissible and 3) non-potable as per the norms of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

Chemical parameters considered for mapping
There are many dissolved minerals and organic constituents present in ground water in various concentrations. Among them, the most common elements are pH, Total Hardness, Iron, Nitrate and Fluoride and the same are considered for mapping and analysis. Table 1 shows the threshold values used for classifying concentration of the elements as per BIS Specifications of 2003.
