The current governement is all upbeat with major projects! Be it Smart Cities, Digital India, National Mission for clean Ganga, Interlinking of rivers, Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor and more.

Such proejcts of national significance, would have major challenges related to project planning, conceptualization, design, implementaion and monitoring. In all these phases of infrastructure and construction projects, geospatial technologies have a significant rile to play. Integration with Building Information Modellin (BIM) is another key benefit, we have been talking here on Geospatial World.

> The Digital India vision areas have a specific focus on leveraging Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for decision support systems & development.

> The Smart Cities and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) (500 cities) both require a centralised information system based on GIS that would integrate every aspect from conceptualisation, planning and development to maintenance.

> National Afforestation Programme clearly mandates use of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) for planning and subsequent project monitoring

> The National Mission for clean Ganga will be facilitating extensive spatial data and analysis of the Ganga basin

> Geospatial Technologies provide a holistic approach to interlinking of rivers based on existing geoinformatics tools and techniques

> North Eastern Region Urban Development Programme talks about extensive use of Geospatial Technologies for planning & management of water supply, sewerage and solid waste management.

> Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project is implementing Remote Sensing, GIS and ITES for perspective planning and nodal planning of the Corridor.
