GeoForest

Essence of Forest

  • Essential for survival and sustenance of life

  • Helps in conservation of soil, water resources, environment

  • It is a natural habitat for wild life & biodiversity

  • Potentially contribute to global climate change

Deplition of Forests

Rapid Urbanisation

Enormous pressure on the forest resources for fuel wood and fodder

Mining, irrigation, hydroelectric projects

Encroachments for agriculture, cattle feeding

Decrease in rain fall

National Forests

  • Forestry is a major government enterprise in India

  • It has 20% of geographical area as forest & 200,000 forest villages

  • 275 million rural poor depends on forest for part of livelihoods

  • National Commission on Agriculturein 1976 recommended the reorganization of state forestry departments and advocated the concept of social forestry

  • National Forest Policy, 1988 focuses on ensuring environmental stability, restoring the ecological balance, and preserving the remaining forests

  • In 2006 forestry in India underwent a major change with the passage of the Forest Rights Act,

  • Overpopulation, farming and environmental factors are major causes of dwindling forest cover

GeoForest

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

its revision

B. Fieldwork: Includes extensive data collection stock mapping updation of compartment

histories etc

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

  • Demarcation of Forest Area

  • Division, Range, Blocks, Compartments,

  • sub-compartment boundaries

  • and boundary pillars

  • Management Plans

  • Working Circles, Felling Series, Periodic Blocks and coupe numbers.

  • Working Plan

  • Forest Density, Forest type, Crop Composition, Site Quality, Contours, Soil Map, Road network, Encroachments, Volume data, Wild life sighting, villages, Boundaries, Research plots and Fire affected area, Plantations etc.

Geospatial technology facilitates collection, storing, retrieval, transfer and display of geographically reference spatial data with its corresponding attribute information to meet a specific requirement.
