DRB Carrying Capacity Study

A multi-institutional project coordinated by Central Mining Research Institute, Dhanbad, and sponsored by Ministry of Environment & Forests, Govt. of India, to study the carrying capacity of Damodar River Basin with reference to socio-economic parameters and environmental parameters: land, water, air and noise. In collaboration with scientists from CMRI, Dhanbad, and NEERI, Nagpur, Pegasus created a digital geographic database of DRB and applied GIS analysis and modelling techniques to study its carrying capacity.

  • DRB area: about 23,300 sq kms
  • DRB spans across states of Bihar and West Bengal
  • Macro geodatabase for entire DRB area
  • Micro geodatabase for coal mining areas of DRB
  • Maps from multiple agencies: SOI, AISLUS, GSI, etc.
  • Image analysis of IRS and LANDSAT
  • Attribute data from census and other special surveys
  • Study used several GIS Modeling/Analysis techniques
Geodatabase creation and GIS modelling/analysis work for the project was done using GIPSY running on Wintel platforms. Pegasus and CMRI presented this work at Map India, New Delhi, 1998.
