Work ExperienceTwenty one years experience of application of remote sensing (in natural resources inventory, development planning and management) in the premier institute (Space Applications Centre, ISRO, Ahmedabad) for application of space date in India. This includes experience as participant (field and practical) and as an advisor. The summary of work is provided below. - Aerial photo interpretation, flight planning and aerial photography. - Field radiometric data collection (agricultural farm), interpretation and analysis. - Visual analysis of satellite data for land use/land cover, wasteland and agriculture. - Multi-platform analysis for crop stress detection, assessment and mapping. - Digital analysis procedures for land use/cover interpretation and mapping. - GIS for resource inventory and planning, especially for wasteland (land degradation) development (land improvement) planning. - Cadastral level mapping from space data and micro-watershed development/conservation planning.
