Indian state to map water resources

Uttar Pradesh State Water and Sanitation Mission (SWSM) in India will document water resources across six zones of the state, using GIS and GPS technologies to take note of ponds (man-made and natural), wells, and hand-pumps.

The mapping will be done by private organizations and the mission office has already invited proposals from expert agencies. The project is a part of the Government of India’s National Rural Drinking Water Program (NRDWP) and will cover villages under six zones of Uttar Pradesh under three commissionaires. These zones are Allahabad, Ghaziabad, Gorakhpur, Lucknow, Varanasi, and Moradabad.
