I have done my Masters in Space Science (2002 – 2004) from University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan. Major Subjects Studied During M.Sc are Master’s research thesis was done in Environmental Sciences entitled “An Analytical Study of Air Pollutants Resulting from Hospital Waste Burning in Lahore”. 2. More than one year experience of GIS in LITMIS cell of JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) Performed several GIS tasks like: • Birds mapping in species level with details of wintering, summering, migratory areas and breeding sites. TJ Roberts knowledge was used as an ancillary data to map all existing bird species in Pakistan. • Database design for the proper archiving of all available satellite data within GIS lab. The exercise has lead to the quick retrieval and management of datasets. • Development of high resolution satellite image based maps of “Lahore canal”. For this purpose Google earth professional was used. Images were geo-rectified and mosaicked to achieve large scale mapping and continuity in datasets. • Documentation of significant parameters and quality assessment techniques for the digitization of topographic sheets for Pakistan Wetlands Programme. • Topocadastral mapping for different project areas/activities. Topographic sheets of 1:250K, 1:100K, and 1:50K was used to extract required details. • Establishment of topographic and cadastral GIS datasets (including DEM and TIN) and linking with relational database systems. • Participated in the development of Pakistan Wetlands GIS based Inventory, activities included database development for satellite images and other GIS based activities. • Maps on different themes were produced for Sindh Strategy document for Sustainable Development (IUCN) using ArcMap 9.0. • Currently participating in GIS component of Indus for All Programme which is the first phase of a 50-year Indus Ecoregion Programme. In the project, Geographic Information system (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) activities are being carried out at three different levels i.e. macro (1:250,000), meso (1:50,000) and micro Level (1:10,000) level. These activities mainly include topograpohic mapping, landcover/landuse development, landcover change analysis and participatory GIS data collection. A web based Indus-eco-region social and environmental atlas has also been developed which follows an interactive decision support system for the project areas in three districts (http://dss-foreverindus.org/). • Work as GIS analyst in “Boundary Demarcation and Re-notification of protected areas” project. This project aims to re-notify the protected areas with geographic coordinates. Boundary delineation in GIS format, ecological base line data collection, landcover/landuse development and protected area atlas will lead to better management of the protected areas. Involved as GIS resource person in a series of three weeklong trainings on forest and natural resource management techniques through remote sensing and Geographic Information technology from 14th July to 1st August, 2008 in Sanghar, Nawabshah and Thatta districts, Pakistan. The trainings, in three districts on area specific themes were attended by various officials from different stakeholders including government departments such as Sindh Forest & Wildlife, Revenue, Sindh Irrigation & Drainage Authority, and Fisheries & Livestock Department.
