Godavari River - Andhra Pradesh
On experimental basis, spatial flood inundation is forecasted in parts of Godavari basin, in collaboration with CWC, MoWR, to understand which areas are going to be inundated within next 24 hours.
Using satellite and ground based observations on hydro-meteorological parameters, landuse / land cover, digital elevation models, flood forecasting is carried out. Further, using fine resolution elevation data derived from Lidar, flood inundation is simulated and integrated on to Bhuvan geo-portal for better visualisation. This information helps in better decision making for flood mitigation.
