The central Regional Remote Sensing Centre (RRSC-C)/ISRO at Nagpur develops a web-based GIS Portal in collaboration with Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Company Ltd. (MSETCL) Mumbai toward spatial integration of information on Electrical Transmission Infrastructure. The RRSC-C was established by the Department of Space in 1986-87 to cater to a wide variety of users in central Indian states of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh to tackle the resources and environmental problems of the region using space technology. The center also works toward facilitating remote-sensing data analysis by the users and establishing strong linkages for the promotion and operationalisation of remote sensing applications in the region.

With its Web GIS Portal, officials of MSETCL are able to visualize their data in a spatial domain along with geospatial analysis tools to generate reports based on various selection criteria.
