About Us

Since its inception Nagaland State GIS & Remote Sensing Centre has been providing full spectrum of innovative geospatial services and solutions, application softwares, geospatial data engineering and analytics services to facilitate all line departments, resource managers, planners and decision makers for sustainable development planning activities in the state of Nagaland. Indian Space programme emphasizes on utilization of space technology for the betterment of the society. Towards realizing this objective the centre is acting as an apex body of the state of Nagaland for space technology applications such as Remote Sensing, GIS, Photogrammetry, IT & ICT. The center has now become a state geospatial resource hub and the repository of various thematic layers; geospatial applications satellite imageries, most modern hardware and software (Image Processing, GIS, GPS /DGPS) installations in addition to a team of scientists and technical staff.
