link up was given. The required data for the preparation of EIA and EMP
can be extracted from this web based MIS from any one or more than one
module as the case may be; which will be used for the Environmental
Clearance. The outlook of web page is:
This webpage MIS, very much useful for various applications like,
assessment of the natural resources, evaluation of LU/LC patterns,
understanding the topography, geology and Environmental Clearance.
This MIS will be useful for industrial estate developers, Enviroenmntal
professionals, academicians and researchers, for their works,
understand the topography, geology, for environmental management,
conservation and industrial development. Environmental professionals,
academicians and researchers has several advantages to get faster
The output of this Ph.D. work is a subset of the major R&D project

7.0 ORGANISATION OF THE THESIS
The Thesis titled “Designing and Development of web based mandal
information system using Geomatics - A case study from prakasam
district, A.P., INDIA” is organized in 7 chapters, the details included in
each chapter is mentioned below.
Chapter 1 is devoted to general introduction, significance of the
study, objectives of the research, study area description and
In Chapter 2, the existing literature Survey in which the earlier
studies carried using Geomatics in the present type of research
work are discussed.
The Overall methodology employed for carrying out the present
study is presented in Chapter 3 methodology for Database
generation, database development, thematic map generation,
attribute data development and web based development with
Spatial and Attribute Data are discussed.
The source and methods employed in generation of spatial
database including the topographic data and other derived data
are explained in Chapter 4 Detail explanation of each thematic
layer and the percentage distribution of individual classes within
each spatial map are presented in detail in this chapter.
The Chapter 5 deals with the developed attribute data in the
access tables, GPS point data of house and utilities and cadastral
survey points of the study area.
In Chapter 6, Design and development of web pages using
ASP.NET and database linkage with the web pages are explained.
Summary Conclusion of the present research work on web based
MIS is given in Chapter 7.
