TNPCB, Institute of Remote Sensing at Anna University to launch web-based geo spatial services portal

 

Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board along with the Institute of Remote Sensing at Anna University will launch a web-based geo spatial services portal that will use satellite maps to keep tabs on industries categorised according to their functioning. TNPCB Chairman A. V. Venkatachalam said, the pollution board will be able to know the location of the industry, type, category, various information relating to consented quantity, renewal status, whether discharge and emission protocols are followed.

The intranet system will be of great use in emergencies such as leakage of poisonous gases and can help the authorities concerned make on site and off site rescue and rehabilitation plans. Details about the number of villages located near the Industry and the leakage impact can be assessed immediately. The National Remote Sensing Agency which is providing satellite maps for institutions like Anna University has relaxed the norms for getting such maps. The TNPCB has also proposed to link the air and water quality data through its monitoring systems.
