Geoinformatics facilities

The Lab endeavours to provide information system solution in geospatial domain. The division enables the office to utilize the technology for innovate, execute, infer, archive and retrieve the information which is gleaned from plethora of remote sensing satellites and ancillary spatial and non-spatial data.

To keep pace with time and technology the division has rolled-out IT solutions chronologically.

  • Super mini (on VAX 11/780, VMS based; VIPS32 digital image processing solution).
  • RISC based Client-Server (on HP 9000 and SGI O2, HP-UX and IRIX based; EASI/PACE, GEOMATICA, ERDAS, ENVI digital image processing solution; and Arc/Info Geographical Information System).
  • INTEL based Client-Server ( on Super server , win 2K advanced server; GEOMATICA, ERDAS, ENVI digital image processing solution and ArcInfo Geographical Information System, SDE, ORACLE, CITRIX metaframe Xpa )which are networked with O.F.C. backbone and CAT 5 UTP cable on IEEE802.3 LAN standard.
  • Presently division augmented campus wide secure, IEEE802.3X & IEEE802.11X standards based LAN. The managed LAN owes all enterprise class, Router, Layer3 & Layer2 Switches and Access Points; where the backbone is six core multimode optical fiber and arterial connections are UTP Cat6.

The UTM secured End point devices are varied from Workstation, Desktop, Laptop, PDA and Smartphone etc.. These are facilitated to access inter-alia named user and policy based Internet connectivity.

The core centralized Geo-informatics facility is biometric access control, based on datacenter - workcenter concept. The whole facility is getting clean power through UPS & D.G.Set and clean environment through centralized AC plant with installed micron filter.
