eGEMS

A Dedicated Web Based System for
Ground Water Data Processing
Analysis and Storage
GEMS - Background
 During the Hydrology Project, Phase I, CGWB
developed a Dedicated Ground Water
Estimation and Management System (GEMS)
Software
 Data entry & data validation
 Processing and analysis
 GEMS was developed in a client server
environment
 Integration of GIS, database & other software
 It handled a large amount of data,
 Originating from about 25,000 manually monitored wells,
 About 6000 wells equipped with automatic water level recorders
 Exploratory wells etc.
GEMS - Issues
 Required Complex installation and configuration
 High Database and of IT Expertise by the users.
 Dependencies on specific hardware, system
software and operating system.
 Difficulty in upgrading or changing modular
components.
 Upgrading GIS software to current version of MapInfo.
 Complexity in import and integration of data
from
 Different instances of GEMS
 Other data management systems.
 Limited installation not possible as per user
levels
 Full range of GEMS functionality need to be installed
 Wide range of options for small office user

eGEMS - Concept
 During Hydrology Project Phase II- It was
envisaged to replicate the existing GEMS
capabilities into a internet based
 Platform independent
 Highly reliable
 Lesser user intervention
 For CGWB and 13 participating Hydrology Project
Phase –II State Ground Water Agencies
 The Contract for the development of
eGEMS application has been awarded to
M/S TCS, Gurgoan
eGEMS - Outlines

 Internet based platform independent
system
 Client access from web browsers
 No software requirement at user end – Web
browser and internet access needed
 Single, centralized data store for
databases.
 Scalable to user requirement

Thank You
A step towards…….
Sharing & Caring for
Sustainable Ground Water Management
Implementation Issues
• Procurement of Hardware
• Delayed procurement
• BSNL data center hiring proposal
• Preparedness of States – Data migration/availability
• Non-Availability of existing legacy data in desired formats
• Non- Availability of GIS data in the new States e.g Punjab, Goa, Pudducherry
etc
• Non uniformity of data standards across states
• Expected to spill over beyond Feb 2014.
• Post project maintenance payments
