How does GIS can help in these?
We do not question here the applicability of GIS But the concern is the limited utility of this tool in discharging the functions of the board at the same time we do not wish to lag behind So, perhaps we can initiate GIS use in the MPPCB may be by asking the Large or Mega Industrial projects exceeding investment of Rs.300/500 crore to submit their EIA reports in GIS format. This shall not only help us to build the Valuable Resource database but shall help develop skill sets to make better & appropriate use of GIS software. At the end
