India’s National Remote Sensing Centre gained added prominence under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, given his past successes with the technology as past governor of Gujarat.

With Narendra Modi taking office as prime minister, his success using remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) technology in his prior post as chief minister of Gujarat from 2001–2014 is leading to an increased stature for the technology in India. Last week, a new program was initiated where senior officials were directed to meet with the National Remote Sensing Centre for project planning and implementation.

While in his prior role, Modi helped establish the Gandhi Nagar-based Bhaskaracharya Institute Space Application and Geo Informatics Agency (BISAG) as a central decision-support system for policy decisions. BISAG is the state-level nodal to facilitate the use of geospatial technologies for planning and development activities for agriculture, land and water resource management, watershed development, forestry, disaster management, infrastructure and education.

GIS is particularly taking hold as an urban planning tool for creating smart cities throughout the country as well as to redevelop existing cities with more modern infrastructure and improved services. GIS is seen as a key enabling technology for infrastructure and utility improvement in all of India, improving efficiency and transparency. The state government of Uttar Pradesh has pledged a redevelopment of 630 cities using GIS as part of the national urban renewal mission, and other states have made similar redevelopment goals with GIS central to planning.

View a detailed video promotion of BISAG below, featuring the former chief minister, with details on how the technology drives the state’s management.
