Experience, Exposure,


The Need:

Everybody associated with the Development in State, wheither from Government or Non-government and Private, needs ready Information. Be it Planning of Programmes and Selection of sites and locations, or Monitoring of activities during the implementation of programmes or the final evaluation of the impacts and results of the efforts, nothing may go without the support of appropriate information.

There is information available in pieces from odd number of sources, many of which are useful and outdated or unreliable. How can one depend and use them! If at all these are available from multiple sources, there is no uniform format.

We understand Maps easily:


Man has the basic instinct to understand pictures and graphical information. The same rule applies even today also - not because we have got any weakness to understand the data, but because - 'No body has time to read thick volumes of Tables and go through voluminous Databases'.

Maps have come in as the best form of presentation of information. Maps have a language that even a layman can understand. Obviously the educated class and the experts may go far beyond simple perception of data and may actually derive many useful conclusions easily which can bring lot of change in their day to day working mainly related to planning and monitoring activities.

It is thus, far more a useful medium than narrative form of information. And when put on computers, that is in digital form, the same maps become much more useful. The GIS techniques are used to computerise the maps - rather, computerisation of maps alongwith data generates a GIS. GIS is a commonly used system these days. Almost all field related works make use of GISs.


The state of Madhya Pradesh, that is India's second largest state, has large number of districts, blocks/talukas and villages and towns. The State has had the privilege of getting one of the first four projects in the country of Preparation of GIS under the auspices of Department of Electronics/ Min. of IT.Govt. of India, way back in 1995. A full fledged GIS centre was established at NCHSE, Bhopal and then began the work of fulfilling the GIS needs of the State from one to all.
