This GIS database has been hosted on ISRO’s geo-spatial platform Bhuvan and a web-based GIS (Bhuvan-NUIS) for accessing, editing and managing the database was developed. NUIS Scheme has provided the basic foundation for understanding and experiencing the utilisation of remote sensing & GIS technologies for urban base and thematic mapping and GIS database creation.
