The Forest Department has tied up with the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) for using remote sensing technology to monitor the forest wealth and water resources and land use planning.

The NRSC will provide technical guidance and training to the manpower deployed at the Green India Mission Lab here to take full advantage of Bhuvan, a geo-information portal of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). A Himachal portal will be launched soon under the Bhuvan platform through which all required information regarding the state could be accessed.
