GIS Project


Project Overview

GIS technology and systems have increased in popularity and interest over the past years. A GIS is a powerful tool for creating, managing, analyzing, and using Geospatial data. It can provide the huge benefit and growth of the future.

In this project, will design and execute a complete GIS-based analysis. Also, Data analysis is in line with project objectives. Interpret and explain the results obtained in comparison

For this Project Using ArcGIS and Erdas Imagine Software for creating maps and data.

Keywords: Image Rectification, Image Enhancement, Image Transformation, R to V conversion(Shapefile), Image classification, Density Analysis.

Location of the Study Area

Kolkata at a Glance

Calcutta/Kolkata stands on the Eastern Bank of the River Ganga. The tail end of the river Ganga flows by the side of Kolkata before it reaches Bay of Bengal about 180 Km. down stream from Kolkata. The Vital Statistics of a capital city, called by the British Raj as The Jewel of the East, and remained its capital till 1911, Kolkata is now the capital of West Bengal, a state of India.

Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) :  The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is responsible for providing basic civic services such as Roads, Lighting, Water Supply, Education, Health,etc to the people of Kolkata.
KMC takes pride in managing this Herculean task in the city, having a 10 million (resident and floating combined) population. KMC is responsible for supplying 350 MGD to 5 million people, clearing 4000 MT of solid waste per day, managing 136 clinics and 119 health units and running 358 primary educational schools with more than 40,000 students. In the last few years, KMC has brought about a phenomenal change in Kolkata by up-gradation of basic infrastructure, revamping inefficient administrative processes and introducing some innovative strategies for improved delivery of citizen services.


  • Find out the vegetation cover of each ward.
  • Measurement of vegetative and non-vegetative area.
  • Find out  variation of vegetation of study area.
  • Find out the population density and vegetation density of the study area.
  • Analysis of the relationship between vegetation and build up.
  • Find out the road types, footpath facilities and other amenities.


The study report has been prepared using the information provide by GIS RS STUDY Organization through the spatial and attribute data .the project has done using the GIS Software (ArcGIS 10.3), and Remote Sensing Software (ERDAS 2014). Some other software use to- Ms-Access Database (2007). Ms-Ward (2007), Ms-Excel (2007) and paint software.

Introduction to the Study Area

The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) total ward is 141, my project study area, ward no. 19 and 20 is in the North–West part of Kolkata, on the left bank of the hoogly river.

  • Geographical location- This study area’s latitude is 22°35’42” North and longitude 88°21’27” East.
  • Area- Total area of the study area is 0,52sq. km, differently ward no.19 is 0.23 and ward no.20 is 0.29
  • Population- According to the 2001 census population in ward no.19 is 24,467 and ward no.20 is 19,486
  • Roads and railway- These two wards are connected all over kokata wilh road and railway. Some main roads are of this area Sovabazar Street, B.K. Pal Avenue, Rabindra Sarani, Ahiritola Street, Stand Bank Road etc. Circular Railway (sovabazar ahiri railway station) and Metro Railway (sovabazar sutanuti metro station) has present both of wards.
  • River- Hoogly is an only river in Kolkata, which is a tributary of the Ganga river. Both of wards situated western side of Hoogly River.

Vegetation and Build up Density Analysis



Thus we come to the final end of the project report where we can conclude the both wards of our study area are very congested and vegetation is very low, because our study area is under town area.

Now we can perform vegetation cover is decreasing day by day and has become a matter of immense concern. We have shown how, with the help of GIS, the affected area can be easily detected. So can extract that bigger name of our city will spend money and detect the affected area will try to improve it by planting as much as possible. Save trees are not for the human beings then for they cannot even speak for themselves.

To add to the deplorable condition of vegetation cover, the area is very densely polluted with narrow roads, making it highly populated and accident prone. Thus, attention should be given to the roads in this area, which are neither wide enough not have a footpath facility.
