About the Auroville CSR Geomatics Studio¶
We are a team working on geographical and related information with an engineering and scientific approach. The concept of geomatics is explained here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomatics.
We develop, maintain and publish data on this web site: https://gis.auroville.org.in.
Currently, the team consists of:
Quick report of the collaborations the Geomatics Team the areas of work: see collaborations.
Working with Gisaf¶
Raw survey data are contained in CSV files, typically downloaded from surveying instruments.
See more information of the process for the survey data (including a flow diagram): Survey data
The categories define the types of the geographical features.
QGis: work on shapefiles¶
Go to shapefiles.
See Data analysis
The team is located in the CSR of Auroville.
We have setup a server for hosting the software and database. See CSR_server for technical information about the setup.
Backup and restoration of the database¶
