SG & SWRDC is a functional Chief Engineer’s office under TNWRD who has the jurisdiction of entire State of Tamilnadu. It has 3 Circles and 10 Divisions under its control with core disciplines of Engineering, Geology and Geo chemistry and Geo physics. The field officers in these officers are required to prepare various GIS based reports within their jurisdiction, using data including Satellite imageries, pertaining to their District, Block or Firka or Subbasin. At present, they are not able to do these reports and are in turn dependent on outsourcing or SDPC for generation of GIS based reports.


The objective of the Training is to equip the officers in DDPCs, RDPCs and SDPC to prepare GIS based reports on Hydrology, Hydro meteorology, hydrology and Water Quality reports, sitting in their respective offices using Open Source Software, with confidence. The training will be tailor made exclusively for the current needs of Field officers in this wing, and will aid in the reducing the time and effort in their routine activities. Such reports are very mush useful for appraising the bureaucrats on various projects, feasibility studies and DPR preparations. Two officers each from 10 Divisions and 3 Circles along with few officers from CE office are to participate and get benefitted.
