To my credit, I have successfully completed the following major projects. Minor projects have not been listed.

Field Based Projects:

  • Study of “Green House gas emission from residential and institutional buildings and its effect on Climate Change and Urban Heat Island effect”: A case study of Greater Noida Municipality.
  • “Studying the effect of Urbanisation and Carbon sequestration on Climate Change” in major cities of Africa using GIS and RS techniques.
  • “Mapping of Urban Heat Island and Climate Change in the NCR region” using Land Surface Temperature as derived from LANDSAT satellite data and its relationship with the urbanisation and growing infrastructure.
  • “GIS mapping of Water bodies in NCR” and its rejuvenation using GIS and Remote Sensing techniques.
  • “GIS mapping and an interactive visualization interface for all DJB water zone of Delhi”: involved mapping of 200 slums in all the DJB water zones of New Delhi with all the basic facilities and water & sanitation infrastructure and developing a generic user interface for viewing and querying the data.
  • “Development of a GIS map of power infrastructure under Agartala Municipal Corporation”: The project was funded by Agartala Municipal Corporation where all the existing 33KV and 11KV lines were to be mapped and superimposed on the generated base map of the area. Around 50km 33KV line and 2000km of 11KV lines were mapped using GPS and further plotted on the base map generated from the existing satellite image of the area. Re-routing of the existing lines were also suggested through development of alternate routes for both 33KV and 11KV lines.
  • “GIS mapping and an interactive visualization interface for ten water zone of Delhi” involved mapping of 100 slums in 10 wards under 5 water zones of New Delhi with all the basic facilities and water & sanitation infrastructure and developing a generic user interface for viewing and querying the data.
  • “GIS based mapping for the Nizzamudin Basti” under “Humayuns Tomb, Nizzamuddin Basti, Sunder Nursery Urban Renewal Initiative of Aga Khan Development Network, New Delhi. Under the project, house level map of the Nizzamuddin Basti was generated through field survey, GPS and IKONOS satellite data. The house-hold data was integrated with the map for studying the economic and social conditions of the people staying in the Basti and a web based map viewing and analysis interface was developed
  • “GIS mapping and an interactive visualization interface for water zone of Delhi” involved mapping the slums in Seemapuri region of New Delhi with all the basic facilities and water & sanitation infrastructure and developing a generic user interface for viewing and querying the data, in association with Water Aid India and CURE

  • “GIS Mapping of the heritage sites in Agra town and its suburbs” involved mapping all the heritage sites in and around Agra town and examining the impact of settlements on these heritage sites. This also includes the mapping of slums in and around the major heritage sites.
  • “GIS Mapping of project site under Health Systems and Reform and Ethics”, a project on mapping the slums in the study area and the analysis of the patients and private practitioners (quacks) for better medical facility, in association with AIIMS and Department of Ethnography and Social Anthropology, University of Aarhus, Denmark
  • “Mapping the Neighbourhood” programme, sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology, under the Ministry of Science and Technology. This is a programme on “ Mapping with school children and community” using GPS and PDA in Hawalbagh development block of Almora district, Uttarakhand
  • “GIS based health information system for TB monitoring”, sponsored by Health-Inter Network programme India project of WHO

  • “GIS based decision support system for a cluster eighteen of villages in Faridabad district”, sponsored by Medial Lab Asia.
  • “GIS based constituency management system” for Rajapur constituency in Maharashtra, sponsored under the MPLAD of then MP Sh. Suresh Prabhu.
  • “Community mapping” in Padlos district, Maharashtra.
  • “Rural mapping” using low cost mapping technologies in Faridabad and Ballabgarh, Harayana.
  • GPS Survey in campaign mode in Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Uttarakhand for crustal deformation studies in the Himalayas
  • “Levelling and Centre-line survey” on the Chandigarh-Leh highway for gravity and magnetic survey
  • “GPS Survey” in fast-static mode along the same route to get the elevation of gravity stations

Documentation projects:

  • “Application of geospatial technologies in power sector”: This is a research study funded by Instrumentation Limited, Kota to study the feasibility of geospatial applications in the work process of the IL
  • “Application of GRID computing in Earth Sciences”: This is a research study funded by Altair Engineering India Ltd., Bangalore to study the applications of GRID computing in the field of Earth Sciences.
  • “Scan of GIS tools and resources for advocacy organizations”, a project supported by the Open Society Institute (OSI). The project is about detailing the range of open and closed source GIS and mapping tools and resources currently (training and information materials) available, and to create an assessment of the functionality and appropriateness of each for use by civil society organizations.
