Remote Sensing & GIS
GIS is a system for capturing, storing, analyzing and managing data and associated attributes which are spatially referenced to Earth, in other terms it is an information system capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying information which is geographically referenced (establishing a relation between raster or vector images to map projections or coordinate systems). GIS is a tool that allows users to create interactive queries (user created searches), analyze the spatial information, edit data, maps, and present the results of all these operations.
It is also known by different names like Land Information System, Environment Information system, Geospatial Information System etc.
Lineament interpretation and analysis
Land Use Land Cover (LULC) extraction
Digital Elevation Model (DEM) preparation using different types of satellite imageries
Linear features mapping
Mapping of two dimensional features like the polygon features
Mapping of point features like the landmark features etc.
Thematic mapping of areas for facilitating for a better decision making
Environmental Engineering and Planning
These outputs are used for working on assignments of sectors like hydro-electric project planning, Oil and gas sector, urban development projects, telecom projects (Digital map data for an area to plan a wireless telecommunication Radio Frequency or RF network has to be provided which will help in studying the logistics of mobile usage and facilitate in planning network infrastructure), mining and mineral exploration etc. VCL also works on projects like Vegetation Mapping, Forestry Mapping, Watershed Management and DEM preparation, Gas Pipeline utility projects, Preparing GIS based geological database and Pipeline Utility Planning Feature extraction from different paper maps to convert into a digital format.
