Details:

A coordinated programme on "Bio-Geo Database & Ecological Modeling for Himalayas" has been initiated by NRDMS division of the Department of Science & Technology keeping in view of the need to develop spatial methodologies for the conservation of natural environment of the fragile Himalayan eco-system. The coordinated programme has been initiated for the States of Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal (Garhwal& Kumaon transects). Representative Micro-watersheds (size between 500-5000 ha) covering lower, middle and upper Himalayan altitudinal transects have been initiated.

An integrated database has been designed to cater to the data collected by different agencies on various aspects of biological and geophysical data. The spatial database conforms to the NSDI standards. In order to facilitate the unified database system an attempt has been made to design a geodatabase for biogeo data using the state of art design techniques. The model is specified in an industry-standard modeling notation called the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The design conforms to the UML standards.

The web interface is developed to evolve a system of information sharing, access and use of the BioGeo data collected for different watersheds. GIS based query system developed has the user defined query and custom report facilities.
