  • A unique GI for societal application is the targeting of ground-water in villages and using images and GIS integration to spot those targets and prepare a unique database solution for the rural areas. This has been quite successful and is a major activity in India. Evaluation from almost 20,000 sites in India has shown that when sites are identified using RS and GIS techniques the probability of success rate of striking good-yield source is almost 95% and higher - compared to about 45% when sites are identified just based on conventional methods.

    1. In the 21st century – Information will bethe fourth pillar of democracy2Executive Legislature InformationJudiciaryFUTURE OF GOVERNANCEFUTURE OF GOVERNANCEInformation as lever of Economicand Social DevelopmentInformation available in realtime to share, manage &collaborate - accurate, reliable,timely & usableGovernment control of strategicinformation – critical
    2. INFORMATIONStrengthening the Fourth Pillar of Democracy requiresPUBLICINFORMATIONINFRASTRUCTURE► Create - access, connectivity, systems, processes,programs, structures, standards & platform► Integrate - geographical (Centre/State) & sectoral(agriculture, transport, finance etc.) boundaries &applications into Single-Secure National InformationSpace
    3. Democratising Information through PII Information is a “public good” / “merit good” Will bring Technology and People together on anequitable/inclusive platform Radicalize democracy through informed citizen participation Improve delivery of & access to public services Empower local governance & community institutions Enhance Equity & Efficiency Public information infrastructure will transform India’s 1.2billion people into 1.2 billion “opportunities”
