These tools are used for visualizing crucial information related to Forest Assets, Plantations, Human-Wildlife conflict, Forest fires, forest types and covers, and mortality for elephants in the forest corridors. These solutions have significantly improved the decision-making process within the department.

Expertise in Image Processing

As explained by Ravikumar, Image processing is one of their key focus areas. This is mainly due to the expertise available to them where the increasing needs of their clients to deal with hyperspectral and high spatial resolution image data play a crucial role. They have honed their skills in the exploration and mapping of natural resources such as agriculture, forestry, minerals, soil, surface and groundwater, and coastal and marine areas.

In addition to this, they prove their competencies in urban mapping, including road network and building footprint extraction, as well as environmental applications like soil and water pollution monitoring. Their expertise extends to super-resolution mapping, artificial neural networks (ANN), support vector machines (SVM), AI and machine learning (ML) based approaches, spectral matching techniques, and multi-sensor image fusion.

Their image processing methodology goes beyond mere enhancement; it involves extracting meaningful spectral and spatial information from multispectral and hyperspectral imagery.
