The primary objective of this project is to map the wetlands of India (natural, manmade, coastal and inland) at 1:50,000 scale and create a database with a query shell. This project has been taken up at the specific request of Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF). Digital analysis of two date (pre and post monsoon) satellite data is used for the purpose. This is the first time that country will have country specific classification system, updated database and map of wetlands at 1:50,000 scale which will help in conservation/preservation plan, water resources plan, methane emission study etc. Atlas of 7 states (Goa, Meghalaya, Manipur, Delhi, Arunachal Pradesh, A&N islands, Lakshadweep islands) has been completed and released by Hon’ble Minster for Environment and Forests on Feb 2, 2010
