Dear Friends,

We are happy to inform you all that IRTC has successfully completed and launched a WebGIS site, based on Free and Open source platform.

This site, “WebGIS Based Decision Support System for Watershed Development of Panchayaths in Kerala” is available at

Presently this WebGIS portal has database of 44 Panchayaths of Kozhikkod district. The database include the resource data and proposed intervention for local level development. We are in the process of adding more Panchayaths into this database.

The entire work has been done using Free and Open Source GIS Software tools like GRASS, QGIS, Mapserver, PostgreSQL-PostGIS and Cartoweb on Debian GNU/Linux platform.

Comments and suggestions to improve the portal are welcome.
