Essence of Forest
Deplition of Forests
Enormous pressure on the forest resources for fuel wood and fodder
Mining, irrigation, hydroelectric projects
Encroachments for agriculture, cattle feeding
Decrease in rain fall
Forest Area in M.P.
Legal status-wise Classification of Forest Area in M.P.
State-wise Forest Area Classification
Classification of forest area & forest types
M.P Forest Department
62 territorial divisions
9 National parks.
25 Wildlife sanctuaries.
Preparation of Working Plans for territorial divisions
Preparation of Management Plan for National Park/Wildlife Sanctuary.
Pioneering the JFM (Joint Forest Management) movement.
Preparation of Working Plans
Working plans are the plan documents which contain detailed planning of field level tasks as per Forest Policy
There are 16 working plans units in the state &Forest Division is unit for its preparation
Process of Preparation
A. First Preliminary Report: Contains results of the past management and justification for
B. Fieldwork: Includes extensive data collection stock mapping updation of compartment
C. Second Preliminary Report: contains outline for future management and prescriptions.
The plan area is classified in various working circles
D. Working Plan submission after approval of the Second Preliminary Report
Implementation of Working Plans
Role of GIS in Forest Management
Geospatial technology facilitates collection, storing, retrieval, transfer and display of geographically reference spatial data with its corresponding attribute information to meet a specific requirement.
(Internet Geomatics-based Forest Mapping)
GENERATE PLAN FORMATS
Information for Field Officers
Creation of Forest Stock map Inventory
Digitization of ~ 4500 Forest Stock Map (1:15,000)
- Variance in maps (legend, naming conventions etc.)
- Gaps in spatial data
- Geo-referencing Issues
- Mosaicking issues
Reconsilation issues/problems (in Integration of spatial and attribute data)
Design of enterprise spatial Geodatabase
Design of an SOA architecture
