Precision positioning is defined as the accurate location of an object with respect to a reference point, which is typically the origin of a given coordinate system. Spatial database and precision positioning technologies (PPTs) have become an indispensable tool in planning, developing, and managing the resources of regional and national importance. These technologies can be broadly grouped into three areas – namely - remote sensing (noninvasive), Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Remote sensing of objects from a distance provides spatio-temporal stamps of events and ability to monitor non-invasively and remotely. GIS is a spatial information query platform that offers visualization tools in the form of maps, integrates various spatial data, and provides analysis for interpretation, estimation, and prediction. Both these technologies are primarily dependent on GPS for the accurate and precise location of geographical/spatial features or objects. PPT play a significant role to address some of the key issues of national importance such as disaster management plans, e-governance, and geo-tagging for land, crop, and resources management.
