Every year in Kharif season, the majority of the agriculture area is damaged due to flash flood or excessive rainfall.

In case of flood due to rainfall, the excess amount of water caused by the precipitation affects the agricultural area where the water drainage system is absent causing Inundation.

Flood Impact: Every year in Kharif season, the majority of the agriculture area is damaged due to flash flood or excessive rainfall. Satellite Remote Sensing provides significant information through the use of satellite imagery along with ground-based data collected from ground surveying teams, to compute precise damage assessment.

In case of flood due to rainfall, the excess amount of water caused by the precipitation affects the agricultural area where the water drainage system is absent causing Inundation.

Flood due to overflow ultimately forms small tributaries and joins the river, creating a situation of the flood in the vicinity of river banks and river plains. The damage assessment of flood can significantly improve the role of land use planning in managing flood risk.

NATCAT Modelling: Natural Catastrophe modeling is a system to estimate the real-time or possible forecast of risk assessment, using the probabilistic approach to predict the outcome and behavior of natural hazards.

This includes risk mapping and measuring hazard through computer simulated catastrophe models where scientific studies and historical occurrences are linked with advance information technology and geographic information system (using Remote Sensing & GIS). Flood risk maps are prepared depending on the estimated depth of inundation of flood.

The estimation is commonly derived from various hydrological and remotely sensed data where the process ensures that areas having the higher depth of inundation will be assigned a high 'hazard denomination'.

Drone Image Analysis for Crop Damage Assessment: Drone image analysis is very useful in micro level-crop assessment for crop loss due to the hail storm, horticulture tree counting, diseases and many more. The accuracy of Drone image data is directly related to the spatial resolution of the input imagery as the spatial resolution is very high ranging from 50cm and increase as per the requirement.
