About the Journal

The “Journal of Geomatics” (JoG) (ISSN:0976–1330) is a peer reviewed journal which covers all aspects of Geomatics – geodata acquisition, pre-processing, processing, analysis and publishing. Broadly this implies inclusion of areas like GIS, GPS, photogrammetry, cartography, remote sensing, surveying, spatial data infrastructure and technology including hardware, software, algorithms and modelling. It endeavours to provide an international forum for rapid publication of developments in the field – both in technology and applications. The first issue was published in April 2007 and since then the journal is published bi-annually (April and October). However, depending on the response and interest, frequency of publication may be increased.

The international Advisory Board comprises of very renowned and experienced international personalities. The Editorial Board comprises experts in the field of Geomatics from India and abroad.

It is truly motivating to see the diverse and innovative research articles published in this issue of Journal of Geomatics. The editorial team is thankful to our authors for considering Journal of Geomatics for publication of their interesting studies in the area of Geomatics.

The first study on " Mapping and Prioritizing Flash-Flood Susceptible Watersheds in the Warana Basin, India: A Morphometric Analysis and Total Ranking Approach for Resilience Planning " demonstrates the quantitative morphometric analysis for Flash-Flood Susceptibility in a river basin. The study presents the approaches to implement appropriate measures for reducing losses caused by flash floods and the development of prevention, protection, and mitigation plans.

The second article, " Geomatics Application for Assessment of Groundwater Prospective Zones – A case study of Kanchi River Sub Basin, Khunti- Ranchi districts, Jharkhand. " highlights the integration and feasibility of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) techniques in hydrogeological studies, particularly in delineation of groundwater prospective zones.

" Fog characteristics study over the IGI Airport, New Delhi during the winter seasons 2010-2022" presents a study conducted at Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi analyzed fog patterns from 2010 to 2022 using METAR data. Results show increasing fog frequency and duration from November to January, with February experiencing a decrease, yet remaining higher than November.

The article on " Prioritization of Watershed for GWPZ Through Remote Sensing, GIS and Integrated Weighted Sum Approach: A Case Study of Dhodana River Basin, Central India " present the use of geospatial technology for periodization of watersheds.

" Fuzzy machine learning based algorithms for mapping chickpea agricultural crop fields using sentinel-2 satellite data " is an interesting study to examine the NC and PCM classifiers, which classified and mapped the agricultural fields using two distinct techniques for selecting training samples.

The article "Agroforestry Site Suitability for Wasteland Greening - A case study of selected districts of various agroclimatic zones " demonstrate the GIS based methodology to identify suitable sites for agroforestry in different agroclimatic zones of India. In this study, the Agroforestry Suitability Index (ASI) was derived to classify the study area in five major priority zones for Agroforestry.
