National Water-logging Monitoring System (WLMSRG) based on Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques:
Introduction: Water Resources Division of SPARRSO has been carrying out research works under the five-year plan (2011 – 2015) for its research and operational work to establish a system for monitoring water-logging in the country. The ultimate objective of this research is to develop and establish national system for monitoring water-logging operationally in Bangladesh based on remote sensing and GIS.
Present status of the system: Work is going-on to generate decadal digital datasets of water bodiesbased on Landsat images of 1973, 1980, 1989, 2000 and 2010 to find out the water-logged areasin the country based on LLWW method.
