Standardization and Quality Control Cell
The maps and image data products generated from processing of geospatial data from
various sources are used for variety of applications in the Government sectors.
It is imperative that such data products are made available in a standard and quality
controlled manner so that seamless interoperability across various users and departments
is ensured. Standardization sets the specifications on size, shape, color codes,
line thickness, legends etc.
The Quality control is a process which is followed in generating the maps and images
in standard formats. The quality control software must not only check for various
process parameters and their limits at every step against the standards and ranges
of various parameters set a priority but also temporarily prompt the user and halt,
if needed, the process of map/ the image product generation. At the end of the total
process, the software will produce a table containing list quality control parameters,
their values achieved and range permitted as per the standards set. Such a table
must also contain the overall quality index.
The aims of Standardization and Quality Control cell are:
School of Geo-informatics
To serve map/image
products to all users with pre-defi ned accuracy levels.
To enable interoperability
among various products and users of variety of disciplines.
To save cost, time
and eff ort.
Maintain ISO standards
and continuously improve these standards.
Improving the quality of Geo-spatial database:
specifi cations, and information content to implement spatial data interoperability.
Establish a Mechanism
for regular updating of the geo-spatial database
Develop tools for eff
ective database management
Visualization of future
