CMPDI has established a full-fledged Geomatics division to form a core multi-disciplinary group dedicated to Remote Sensing, GIS, GPS, Digital photogrammetry, LiDAR, Terrestrial and Mine Survey for integrated natural resources survey and management. Geomatics division has a professional group of multidisciplinary team having rich experience in the field of airborne and satellite data processing, GIS, Surveying, Photogrammetry, Geology, civil engineering, Computer Science and Digital Image Processing.


CMPDI is extensively using the geospatial technology in all the three stages of mining i.e. pre-mining, syn-mining and post mining ranging from topographical survey, mineral exploration, land use planning, watershed management, excavation measurement to slope stability, ground subsidence measurement, coal mine fire mapping, environmental management, land reclamation and mine closure monitoring. Besides mineral sector, CMPDI is using this technology for locating potential pit head and coastal thermal power Station (TPS) sites, reservoir siltation, sodic land mapping and coastal zone management amongst others


Considering the best application of geospatial technology in mining sector, Coal India/CMPDI has been conferred Geospatial World Excellence Award- 2012 at Amsterdam, The Netherlands for Application of Geospatial Technology in Mining.

Reservoir Sedimentation Assessment

Data from space platforms play a significant role in reservoir capacity estimation surveys. In the recent past, Satellite Remote Sensing has emerged as an important tool in carrying out reservoir capacity surveys rapidly, frequently and economically. CMPDI did the sedimentation assessment in Govind Ballabh Pant Sagar near Singrauli Coalfield at different periods.

Coal Mine Fire Mapping

Methodology for mapping coal mine fire using Airborne Thermal Scanner (Daedalus-1268) data was first developed by CMPDI in collaboration with NRSC, Hyderabad way back in the year 1992 in India. Coal mine fire mapping is being carried out using ASTER thermal band data for Jharia, Raniganj , Bokaro and Karanpura coalfields on annual basis and Fire Management Information System (FMIS)is developed to monitor the fire dynamics.

Sodic Land  Mapping

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About 2.04 million hectare land of the country is affected by soil salinity/ alkalinity. Due to excess use of chemical fertilser and canal irrigation, soil salts precipitated at the surface and made the land barren. CMPDI has developed the methodology for cadastral level sodic land mapping based on high resolution satellite data for UP Bhumi Sudhar Nigam Ltd. Sodic land mapping in Pratapgarh and Allahabad districts was carried out as pilot project for UPBSNL.

Site Selection   for TPS, Washery & route alignments

CMPDI has established a methodology for locating the potential TPS sites numero uno using Geo Spatial technology in India for Central Electricity Authority, Govt. of India. More than 100 TPS & UMMPs sites are located by CMPDI including pit heads, load centers and coastal areas. Most of the UMMPs are coming on the sites selected by CMPDI.
