ESRI India SAG (Special achievement in GIS) Award - 2012
As coastal populations continue to grow, and community infrastructures are threatened by erosion, there has been an increased demand for accurate information regarding shoreline changes. NCSCM has successfully completed the “National Shoreline Change Assessment” for the entire coast of mainland India with the extensive use of GIS Technology. The study has provided sound technical and analytical information to develop recommendations for coastal sediment management and the roles of the Central and State government's participation in shoreline management.
For this unique and appealing application of GIS technology in holistic assessment of shoreline change, ESRI India is pleased to honor NCSCM, Chennai with ESRI India SAG (Special achievement in GIS) award for the year 2012.
