GIS technology will help resource management, route optimization and interlinking ofmultiple resources for better planning in the district.

The GIS database should be published and updated very frequently in concerneddepartments.

The GIS districtdata can be made sharable among the departments and made user friendly, and also GISdatabase should remain in public domain.

However, such work needs to be expanded specially among researchers, governments,and communities. This can lead to a beneficial strategy that helps to solve the related publicissues, through the use of Geographic Information System technology as a tool in the district.
