India: In a first for the state of Uttar Pradesh, Noida Authority is getting set to create a 3D model of the city using digital mapping of surface and underground objects. The 3D map will not only have information on every square inch of the city but also on what's underground.
The Authority initiated tenders for the project last month and invited interested consultants to submit their proposals. As per the tender requirements, consultants are required to prepare the 3D digital base map of the existing city by 3D laser scanning and terrestrial surveys. The 3D base maps shall consist of details of Noida's built structures, infrastructure, open spaces and the overall urban landscape. Technical bids are likely to be finalised next week.
