Watershed Management is a broader term. Almost every country is managing its watershed to make a happy life. Computer science can do wonders in managing watershed. Since planning is back bone of any management project, the essence of this write-up is to emphasize on Watershed Planning. Planning in right direction will acts as power house and that in turn helps in successful execution of the project .
In the current Digital era , at the planning phase itself , an online Analysis system should be developed for of Watershed Management. For example:-
Online Detailed Watershed Report- While preparing Online Detailed Watershed Report, an online Analysis system should be developed in such a way that it will include the baseline. This baseline data will act as a repository of primary and secondary data of the specific watershed. The on line data information will include information on Wasteland , Rain fed Agricultural land ,cropped area, water storage structures , depth of ground water , population etc. All this collected data will help to assess the project performance at the end of the project
A Detail Watershed Report will act as an Atlas for all forth coming watershed development projects and can enlighten their steps for further development.
