The Institute of Remote Sensing which comes under Chennai’s Anna University, India is helping the state government agencies to map Covid-19 positive cases in the state.
When data comes in, the team physically marks it into the maps. Experts are using this data to prepare a grid that will help the state agencies work on their containment zones and buffer zones and also help them with how to operate resources.
The experts use satellite base mode sensing data and GIS.
The institute has taken maps prepared earlier for various projects they have worked on like the Tsunami, Disaster Management, drought, and water resources and have overlayed those maps together to create a wide grid.
Each patient’s address is identified and located on this map. This they believe could also help authorities easily map surrounding areas of an active case and help local bodies identify a possible spread. Street details can also be accessed. www.indiatoday.in
