Considering the national needs and research priorities, the following application domains are selected by the G-SAG lab.
Domain 1 – Geohazards
The G-SAG aims to utilize the advanced GIS techniques, space and air-borne remote sensing and field measurements to assess and evaluate the landslides induced susceptibility, hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment; and seismic micro-zonation maps.
Domain 2 – Geological Applications
The G-SAG plans to apply space and air-borne hyperspectral images and image interpretation techniques for the seamless mapping of lithological units and demarcation and characterization of the mineral zones.
Domain 3 – Water Resource Dynamics
To evaluate the influence of various components of the hydrological cycle on water resources dynamics.
Domain 4 – Forest Resource Assessment
Applying and development of space and air-borne remote sensing methods for the assessment, characterization, and change detection of forest resources.
