Road Information System

Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) techniques can be effectively utilized for mapping of the entire road network and the generated databases can be used for developmental action plan.

As there is no proper road inventory for Nagaland, a proposal was put forward for preparation of Road Network map and generation of database for management of road for the entire state in GIS environment.

Under the project, database of Road Network covering all the types of road viz. National Highways, State Highways, other district roads, and Block/Circle roads was prepared and presented in the form of digital and analogue Atlas. The basic objectives of the proposed study are to prepare Road maps on 1:10,000 scale at District level using various datasets and to prepare Road Information System for both District and Block level in the form of Atlas.

The project was funded by NESAC, DoS.
