This is the second volume in the series of District Resource Atlases that the Madhya Pradesh Council of Science and Technology (MPCST) plans to publish in collaboration with the Centre for Policy Studies. The first volume in this series was about Jhabua
district that lies on the south-western corner of the state. The present volume is about Sidhi, a district located diagonally opposite Jhabua in the north-east of Madhya Pradesh. Both districts have a rugged geography and difficult terrain, and both have a substantial presence of the tribal people.
The MPCST is the nodal agency of the state of Madhya Pradesh for the analysis and application of remote sensing data. As such, the Council is the repository of detailed primary information and maps on the geography, topography, geology, geomorphology and soils and of the derived maps on water prospects, land and soil irrigability and land capability of the state. The Council also has detailed land use maps for several years. The information and maps available with the Council thus have the potential of forming the core of a basic resource atlas For every district of the state.
The Madhya Pradesh Districtwise Resource Atlas Programme is an attempt to bring together the data resources of the MPCST and the established capabilities of the Centre for Policy Studies in compiling, analysing, processing and graphically presenting large amounts of inforrnation and data to create a resource atlas For every district of Madhya Pradesh.
