Forest Boundary Survey and Supply and Installation of Monoliths
About the project
Physical demarcation of forest boundaries as per the existing forest map and government records is one of the necessary activities for all forest departments. Jharkhand Forest department had decided to utilize DGPS/ETS technology-based approach for preparing a digital database of forest lands under their jurisdiction to identify encroachment areas and to mitigate boundary violation related issues along with physical demarcation of forest pillars with more positional accuracy. The project was initially planned for some selected mouzas under some forest divisions of Jharkhand.
Objectives of the Project
The objective of the project was to identify and demarcate the boundary of the Jharkhand forest through extensive DGPS surveys. Additionally, this project was conducted in an attempt to:
- Create a digital database of the forest land
- Demarcate the forest area by erecting pillars at the locations where they are missing
- Identify the forest areas on the map that have become encroached upon owing to the missing boundaries pillars
CyberSWIFT took up the project and completed it successfully.
