Mapping and Reclamation of Wastelands in Yelanduru Taluk of Chamarajanagara District, Karnataka, India Using Geo-Informatics Technique

Authors(3) :-Basavarajappa H. T, Pushpavathi K. N, Manjunatha M. C

Wastelands mapping and its reclamation analyses has been applied on Yelanduru taluk in Southern tip of Karnataka using high-tech tools of geoinformatics. With the increasing population the natural resources like forest, agricultural land etc., have been devastated and degraded to a great extent. Unscientific handling of land resources in a region causes ecological imbalance & vast stretches of wastelands. The present study aims to propose appropriate management strategies to reclaim the wastelands in the study area. Efforts have been made to evaluate the unutilized lands using Survey of India (SoI) topomap of 1:50,000 scale, IRS-1D PAN+LISS-III satellite and Google Earth images through GIS software’s with limited Ground Truth Check (GTC). This reveals the spatial baseline information in distribution, extent and temporal behavior of each wasteland categories for better planning and developmental reclamation strategies. Major identifiable wasteland categories are barren rocky; land with scrub; mining wasteland and salt affected area. The final result specifies each wasteland categories in the study area using geoinformatics technique considering the environmental, biophysical and socio-economic factors.
