Watershed can be effectively monitored or we can say managed using Information technology.
In today’s era we all are aware of technologies some or the other way. Everyone is fond of using Android mobiles or technology , this technology can be used in monitoring , decision support system , management etc.
To improve watershed areas , close monitoring is needed , and that is to be in timeliness.
A simple Android mobile application can be used in the field to send the field data at any stage of Program implementation to the geoportal for any kind of monitoring purposes or we can say DSS. The software tool allows type of implementation, GPS coordinates of the location, 2 Pictures of the actual status on the ground/field , uplinking or uploading feature from the field itself for near real-time posting on the geoportal, adding of specific attribute information at the field itself while forwarding the details. Any user can easily upload such data from the field, including common public so that implementing agencies of any project can analyse these datasets to get an idea of actual implementation at field level, in addition to the satellite images. This uses GPS system for location, GPRS/ Wifi as available for communicating to the server and automatically connects to the server for sending the data as and when connectivity exists from the mobile to the server.
