Résumé / Abstract

Dams and diversion are built in India for meeting needs of water and energy. Due to variability of monsoon in space and time, precipitation falls short or exceeds causing in extreme cases drought and floods respectively. Water resource planners and engineers need information on dams and diversion. Drought information is needed in disaster management. For dissemination of these spatial data, Web GIS technology can be utilized, which is amalgamation of several information technologies. For Web GIS application, a high end, powerful and open source software, namely Mapserver is available. The software is CGI technology based. An application on dams and drought information for India is conceptualized using Mapserver. It is planned to write the application by modifying available tutorial. This will require writing DHTML pages, writing logic, using available libraries etc. Separate DHTML pages will be written for dam and drought applications. For dam application pages will be written for storage, hydropower and all dams. The drought application will provide maps of rainfall over districts for different SPI and time scales.
