The Remote Sensing Centre of Soil and Land Use Survey of India is located at C-4, Sector-1, NOIDA. It has requisite infrastructure and equipment support for both visual and digital image analysis of the remote sensing data and generation of spatial and non-spatial digital database under GIS environment. The centre is equipped with a number of advanced hardware and software. IRS and PAN Digital Data and False Colour Composites (FCC) paper prints, covering major part of the country are available with the Remote Sensing Centre. The major equipments procured to deal with development of spatial and non-spatial database and updating with remote sensing techniques are listed below.

Each Centre is well equipped with soil testing laboratory for analysis of soil and water samples to support the field observations and supplement data for sound interpretation and recommendations. The laboratory of each centre is managed by Asstt. Soil Chemist and/or Technical staff. Soil analysis comprising physical, chemical and soil fertility parameters is carried out in these laboratories for characterization of soils to derive interpretation groupings for utility purposes, soil management and to understand the development of soils. The characterization of soil in the laboratory through determination of physical and chemical properties helps to understand the genesis of soils, proper placement of soil in taxonomy, evaluation of land use potential for agriculture and non-agriculture practices, land suitability, integrated nutrient management and soil reclamation purpose. Soil analysis is thus very essential to identify the status of plant nutrient, soil physical conditions, soil acidity, alkalinity and judicious application of irrigation water and chemical fertilizer.



Cartographic Laboratory for preparation and reproduction of the maps exists in each centre of the organization..
