Knowledge Management Unit
The Knowledge Management Unit of the apsac is designed to provide support to the Society in strengthening and showcasing the activities and expertise of the society. The key focus of the Knowledge Management Unit of APSAC is to support the process of making the Development Planning process in the state a professional and specialised activity that can assist the planning and design the growth process of the state. Supporting studies and analysis of key data parameters is done and the feedback put up in varied forms to assist policy makers in building a specialised unit providing feedback and inputs in charting future developmental process. 

The immediate focus of the Unit is to compile the varied reports, case-studies, manuals, and other data that the apsac has accumulated in the past years of its existence and put them in an understandable form that can help in not only assisting our preparedness but also establish the field expertise of apsac.

Creating an apsac website and its activities is one of the few proposals that the Knowledge Management Unit proposes to establish a continued and interactive visibility to it. The website is to contain several kinds of communication mediums. Key data, and reports on Remote Sensing applications are to be generated and placed in public domain for information, discussion and feedback. The website showcases both static data like reports, analysis, data sets and other official documents that apsac generates as a part of its support activities to the core functions of the AP Planning Department.

The reports and maps on Water resources management, Hydrological assessment, Hydrological modelling, Command area monitoring, Landuse and land cover, Natural resources mapping, Landuse change dynamics, Lake conservation, Agricultural crop acreage, Drought area monitoring, Soil moisture estimation, Coastal zone data, Shoreline change analysis, Mangrove mapping and change detection, Costal Regulation Zone, Coastal drainage, Disaster mitigation activities, archives of earlier reports/documents that will elaborate the field of operation of apsac will also be collated and put on web for universal access.
