DAY 2: Introduction to anaylsis of Sabarmati River Basin

November 28, 2008

(Notes from introduction given by Prof. Chhaya)

The first exercise of the workshop was the analysis of the environs of the entire stretch of the Sabarmati River. The participants were given a Google Earth image of the entire length of the Sabarmati basin and the reading of patterns on the map was discussed. In discussion with the students, it was found that the following could be observed from the google image:

settlements, farmlands, forest areas, eroded bad lands, grazing lands (gochar), estuarine areas, wet lands, industry, linkages/ movement.

In terms of a document, the students were also required to record elevations of places, important landmarks not covered above, and distances from nearest urban centres.
