Geo referencing Service

SBL through its varied geospatial services is in forefront to full fill the requirements of all of its clients. Georeferencing is one such service SBL provides. Georeferencing means bringing maps and images in to a real world coordinate system. Satellite and other kinds of images and scanned maps are devoid of any coordinate information in its raw form and hence cannot used for any of the geospatial purpose. Some of the satellite images are loosely georeferenced when it is procured. Here also positional accuracy is a big issue. So georeferencing is the primary pre requisite for the creation of any kind of geospatial data base creation. For scanned maps georeferencing means bringing to the geospatial frame work. For satellite images georeferencing means applying geometric correction to the images. Assigning a suitable project is always an associated activity in georeferencing. So georeferencing is not only bringing the maps and images to the coordinate framework, it also involves with assigning a suitable projection so that maps and images will be of real world coordinates. A georeferenced map or image will open in its correct spatial location and can be used with similar other georeferenced maps for various overlay analysis. Hence georeferencing is a positional correction applied in x, y direction of the maps and images. Orthorectification is a refined form of georeferencing where relief displacement will also be taken care so that images will be correct with respect to x, y and z planes.

Georeferencing is a basic function available in almost all geospatial software platforms. The major activities involved are incorporation of ground control points, re projection and re sampling. Ground control points are those points whose coordinate information (latitude and longitude values) were known prior hand and is identifiable in maps and images. Ground control points can be taken from printed graticule values on maps, or can be surveyed using precision instruments such as DGPS and can be taken from a pre geo referenced map or image. A minimum number of 5 GCP values are required for georeferencing. Based on the accuracy requirement number of GCPs and type of GCPs can be determined. Once the ground control points are placed, using the software algorithms we can re project and re sample the maps or images. Various complex statistical methods and transformational equations were used for the re sampling the images to its real world coordinates. During the process each and every pixel of the maps and images will be re positioned with respect to the GCP and methods used for the purpose and finally a georeferenced maps or image can be generated. Accuracy of the georeferencing can always be obtained through RMSE error for the GCPs used in the process. Hence it is very much a quality controlled activity where very high positional accuracy can be obtained. SBL is capable of handling images and maps in huge numbers for geo referencing and allied acidities.

Ground water pollution modeling through time series 3D modeling

Ground water during its conduit through soil leaches pollutants and getting itself contaminated in the process. Regional scale treatment is required to contain such spreading of contamination. Present study is one such study conducted by SBL geospatial team for an environmental management firm at Ohio area of United States of America. Ground water samples were collected from 1998 to 2012 and analyzed for ethane content. It was for an environmental management exercise to demonstrate that ethane content can be contained by time duration of 14 to 15 years. All the well locations were plotted initially in a 2D environment and later converted to 3D environment by implying well screen height with respect to mean sea level and treated as z element in the analysis. Then the spread of ethane horizontally and vertically is established by a complex 3D model plotting of the ethane concentration in µgm/liter derived through analysis of collected water samples. Later 3D contours of the ethane concentration were derived from the created 3D surface model.This analysis was iterated for monthly data of ethane concentration for a period of 1998 to 2012. Later time series analysis of the ethane concentration has done and found that as duration increases ethane concentration was reducing and is fully contained by 2012.

SBL Proud to be apart of India’s first ever paperless budget session.

Himachal Pradesh is set to become the country’s first state to present a ‘paperless’ budget on March 11. Since the state already has the country’s first green assembly, all documents related to budget estimates would be made available online and only around 10 budget copies would be printed for record.

Earlier, around 200 copies along with huge volumes of other documents used to be published during the budget session. Running the proceedings on e-Vidhan would save the state exchequer Rs 15 crore annually.

SBL,  Associate Partner for the development and implementation of e-Vidhan system is proud to be part of the first ever paperless budget session in India.

SBL to Attend Europe’s Largest Family History Exhibition

Genealogy service

Genealogy service


In April 2015, The National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK, will throw its doors open to tens of thousands of family history enthusiasts. In keeping with our long history of transcribing billions of old genealogical records, SBL’s UK team will be attending.

The event – enticingly named ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ after the ever-popular BBC TV series – brings together all elements of the Genealogy family tree. These range from large Genealogy search companies such as Find My Past, through to archive organisations like The National Archives, through to the general public who are simply there to research their ancestors. Such is the popularity of this annual event that it runs for 3 full days.

Of course one of the reasons why SBL attend is our close affinity with the Genealogy sector. This is in part an emotional connection, as we have been responsible for indexing and transcribing a very significant part of the historical records currently available, and not just in the UK. So when you next look at an old parish record, or census return, or schools register, or Birth, Marriage & Death certificate, there is a very high chance that we will have been involved in transforming the old paper document into a searchable image or database.

If you would like to discuss our Genealogy Services then please don’t hesitate to contact us. It is also worth remembering that many of the skills required for indexing and transcription – fast and accurate data handling, high levels of concentration, unerring attention to detail, well established QA & QC processes (we are ISO Accredited) – are transferrable to other sectors. For instance we already provide similar data processing and management services to Insurance Companies, Banks, Accountancy Practices, Retail and Legal.

Digital India Vision: Opening up the way for e-Governance and digitization solutions to public & private sector.

internet concept
In a stirring ‘call to action’ speech towards the end of 2014, Prime Minister Modi outlined his ambitious vision for a Digital India. It quickly became clear that the successful implementation of this vision would rely primarily on the implementation of IT & Technology innovations across public and private sectors. In particular, a key starting point would be initiating the change from paper-based information silos to paperless and evolving data ecosystems.

At SBL, this announcement was met with great enthusiasm. As a leading IT solution provider in e-Governance projects, and a long-standing advocate of digital transformation in India, it felt as though our own strategy was finally aligning with central government policy. Most impressive of all was the understanding that a successful digital transformation has a number of vital stages, all of which must be joined up through a comprehensive and coherent plan.

Our successful track record in implementing e-Governance solutions demonstrates that we have the required understanding and project capabilities to formulate and execute these often complex plans. Part of this is of course carefully implemented change management. We have already helped a range of organizations to navigate this transformation. These include Government departments, Legislative Assemblies, Publishing companies, Libraries and Commercial enterprises. Typical project activities include digitizing and archiving existing paper records; inter-active database creation; hosting and joined up management of data; e-portal creation to deliver digitized records online.

We are delighted to be part of the ambitious Digital India project.
