National Remote Sensing Centre

National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), located at Hyderabad is one of the centres of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), striving to realise the Indian Space Vision, as a key player in Earth Observation Programme and Disaster Management Support programme. NRSC is responsible for acquisition, processing, supply of aerial and satellite remote sensing data and continuously exploring the practical uses of remote sensing technology for multilevel (global to local) applications. It provides the necessary trained manpower through capacity building in remote sensing applications.

NRSC has wealth of images from Indian and foreign remote sensing satellites in its archives and also has the capability to acquire data pertaining to any part of the globe on demand. NRSC also supports, through ANTRIX, establishment of International Ground Stations and International reseller network to receive, process and market IRS data products globally.

NRSC provides end-to-end solutions for utilization of data for natural resource management, geospatial applications and information services. NRSC facilitates several remote sensing & GIS application projects for natural resources and environmental management catering to food security, water security, energy security and sustainable development. NRSC is also providing single window, disaster management support services through the Decision Support Centre. Recently NRSC has started to give its services on Land use Land cover of India under an Information portal called BHOOSAMPADA. The major objective of this portal is- Dissemination and Sharing of Geo-spatial Information Derived from IRS Data on Land use and Land cover of India.
