National Center of Geo-Informatics (NCoG) is a Geographic Information System (GIS) based decision support system platform, under National e-Governance Division (NeGD), which was launched on 28th December, 2015. NCoG is being supported by “Bhaskaracharya Institute for Space Applications and Geo-Informatics (BISAG)”, Gujarat, as its Knowledge partner.
What are our objectives ?
Provide a national platform for developing geo-informatics related resources and capabilities in the country.
Provide applications and solutions to all Governments, Central, State, Local self-governments in the area of geo-informatics.
Integration of Geo-informatics with Management Information System (MIS) for more value based outcomes and decision making.
Take up programmes for human resource development in the area of geo-informatics.

What is GIS ?
Geographic Information System (GIS) is integral to Planning, Decision Making & Electronic Delivery of Services. It geo-enables e-Governance to facilitate location based information for all. Thus, implementation of GIS based Decision Support Systems (DSS) through NCoG is essential for ushering ‘Good Governance’ as it facilitates transparency, responsiveness, efficiency & effectiveness, accountability and participation across Government.
What do we do ?
NCoG provides one of its kind of ‘GIS platform’, for sharing and collaborating GIS data source, location based analytics and ‘Decision support system’ serving to Central/State government and departments across the country. Geo-Informatics is integral to planning, decision making & electronic delivery of services, geo-enabling e-governance to facilitate location based information for all.
NCoG has facilitated the integration of GIS platform with the MIS data for Ministries and Departments across India. By enabling a better understanding of the geographic aspects, NCoG via GIS is transforming India and taking good governance to a whole new level.
