Joint Programme of Department of Science and Technology, Government of India and Government of Karnataka

Welcome to Karnataka Geoportal

Karnataka Geoportal is an Internet based Geo Spatial Data Directory for the state that allow the users of the system to share and explore the information related to political and administrative boundaries, state geography, demography, agro & socio economy, resources, infrastructure facilities with attributes.

Spatial datasets generated, maintained and provided by various concerned Departments of the State Government, academia, private or civil society organizations of Karnataka are proposed to be made accessible through the project data clearinghouse mechanism.

The Portal will essentially be used for the following objectives:

  • Bringing together geo spatial knowledge and information under a common platform, which till date has existed as a disparate system and unknown to quite a wider section of the society, institutions, scientific community and government departments.

  • Gateway for various data generating agencies to share the information across various government departments, NGOs, academies, industries and scientific organisation.

  • Provides spatial data dictionary and map directory for the state

  • Analysing the needs of various government programmes

  • Facilitate decision support system and helps in local level planning

  • Eventually can be used for the data sale and purchase, which can be part of the state revenue generation
