Knowledge Hub and Data Centre
 

The Knowledge Hub has been set up with an objective of enriching our knowledge with latest information available in the field of urban planning and development. This will be done through the vast collection of maps, imageries and books in the Knowledge Hub and Data Centre that will also give technical backup to the government departments and people working in the field of Urban Planning and Development of North-East India.

Knowledge hub and data centre is now equipped with books related to urban hydrology, watershed management, urban planning and development etc, high resolution satellite imageries of all the state capitals of NE India, digital landuse maps of Guwahati showing spatio-temporal changes, monograph of Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) system etc.
