Vulnerability Maps


The work on research areas such as: (i) Multi-hazard Vulnerability (iii) Real-time tsunami inundation modeling as well as (iii) 3-D GIS have been initiated. The broad scientific methodologies have been established. A pilot project on 3 D GIS was undertaken for the coastal stretch between Cuddalore and Nagapattinam. Tsunami hazard maps using tsunami propagation models and CARTOSAT derived coastal topography have been prepared for the coast of Tamil Nadu, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh on 1:25000 scale. Preparation of similar maps for the coasts of the Andaman & Nicobar, Kerala and West Bengal are in progress and shall be completed by 2012. Preparation of 1:5000 scale tsunami hazard maps for the coast of Orissa using ALTM data has been initiated and will be completed by the end of 11th plan.

The CVI maps at 1:100000 scale for the entire coastline of India including Andaman & Nicobar and Lakshadweep Islands have been completed.
