Geographical Information System (GIS)

Dairy Surveyor application:

Our milk unions operate in large geographical area covering many villages and towns. Hence, we need an information system which not only captures the data but also maps its location. Dairy Surveyor application developed by NDDB provides solution to this and facilitates real time monitoring and planning of various dairy activities.

Dairy Surveyor is a GIS enabled field data collection, visualisation and decision making android application. This mobile application along with the data also captures latitude and longitude of the location which makes it a unique application.

With the help of Dairy Surveyor application the milk unions will be able to greatly enhance their decision making capabilities related to planning and monitoring.

This article focuses on development and implementation of Internet based Dairy Geographical Information System, a strong visualisation tool, which not only enables identification of villages but also integrates human census and livestock census of villages, in all the major milk producing states of India. It has been developed by the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB).

GIS for Milk Unions :

NDDB has developed a programme exclusively for Milk Unions, to utilise the potential of GIS applications, using Open source Software QGIS (Can be freely downloaded from www.qgis.org) and GIS database. This will be an independent setup at Milk Union level to their business data. This would be a stage wise implementation programme comprising of field data collection, processing and analysis.

NDDB shall provide the GIS Server and Dairy Surveyor application for the use of milk unions and producer owned institutions. It would provide appropriate training and initial handholding for implementation of aforesaid programme.
