The Indian state Andhra Pradesh’s Chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy recently launched survey operations for Nizamabad district after a gap of 108 years under the Integrated Land Information System (ILIS), using aerial photogrammetry and electronic total stations technology. The original survey operation was conducted in Nizamabad in 1897. National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) would fly aircraft fitted with sophisticated cameras over Nizamabad district. Photo data generated would be processed and prints of appropriate size would be carried out for ground verification of boundaries with farmers. The ground survey work would be taken up in three phases. The aerial survey of the entire Nizamabad district would be completed in the next 4 to 6 weeks. The field work was expected to go on upto November 2006.
