Water Resources Information System

New Delhi: December 13,2012

Central Water Commission in collaboration with Indian Space Research Organization had undertaken the work of development of Water Resources Information System (WRIS) during the XI plan; The WRIS is at 1:50000 scale with 30 major Geographical Information System (GIS) layers as described at Annexure I. The List of the GIS layers presently available on the website www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in is available at Annexure – II.

WRIS, a tool for planning and management of Water resources, has following major objectives.

(i) To collate available data from various sources, generate new database of country’s water resources in standardized Geographical Information system (GIS) and provide a thin client scalable web enabled information system;

(ii) To provide easier and faster access and sharing nationally consistent and authentic water resources data to various Water Resources departments, professionals and other stake holders for Integrated Water Resources management;

(iii) To provide tools to create value added maps by way of multi-layer stacking of GIS databases so as to provide integrated view of water resources issues;

(iv) To provide foundation for advance modeling purpose and future Spatial decision support system including automated data collection system;

 

The WRIS is in public domain website www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in and is accessible to the users after web registration. The information available under WRIS will enable users for the augmentation and judicious use of water resources in the country.

                This information was given by Union Water Resources Minister Shri Harish Rawat in the Lok Sabha today in reply to a written question .
