In India, the responsibility of this project is being handled by several organizations, of whom USAC is also part of. USAC completed the geo-mapping of the Kailash land area of seven thousand kilometers through satellite. 40 maps have been created under this mapping. They have been conducting a research study in the field since 1976.
The map shows the distribution of insects in the Himalayan region, apart from the situation of land sloping areas, species forests, major tourism, and temples. This information has been compiled in the book. Dr MPS Bisht, director of USAC, said that this will provide special help in determining environmental monitoring and planning.
