Stock Mapping of Reserved and Protected Forest

One of the prime authorities related to forest conservation is the Forest Department, Government of Maharashtra. The Department works towards sustainable development and conservation of forest assets. With the growing urbanization, the department undertook the mammoth task of  digitization of Forest stock using the traditional handwritten maps.

Coderizers have digitized 2000+ handwritten stock maps using Remote Sensing & Image Interpretation techniques.
