Chandigarh, December 5th 2006, Tribune News Service

Students of Punjab Engineering College (PEC) will now map Mohali. The Centre for Computational Engineering of the college has been given a project as a part of which the 1,350 sq km of the area falling under the jurisdiction of the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) will be mapped to create a base picture.

According to Prof S.C. Dhawan, in charge of the center, the main aim is to generate a ground picture of the area so that future planning can be done accordingly. Other than the inputs given by students who will move around the entire area, geographical survey of India sheets and other geo-spatial data will be used to complete the picture.

The project titled “GIS based land use mapping” involves the creation of land use map for Greater Mohali. For this satellite image ‘cartosat’ is being procured from the National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA), Hyderabad. The CCE will prepare the land use map using the Satellite Image and Survey of India topo sheets. Major features like roads, water bodies, village settlements, high transmission lines etc. will be mapped. This information will be used by the department for planning of the Greater Mohali area. The college is now awaiting a work order from GMADA to begin the work.
