GIS-based crime monitoring in Noida, India


Noida, India: Cameras mounted at vantage points in crowded areas that will be monitored 24X7 and other technology-based mapping systems and information systems will make this growing city safer for residents and those who come to work and study here, according to Noida Authority chairman and CEO Mohinder Singh.

“Cameras will be mounted at vantage points and will be monitored round-the-clock by the central control room and we are in the process of integrating all the data about the city and mapping it with an advanced GIS technology, which will be in place soon,” said, Singh.

Mohinder Singh concedes the industrial town on the outskirts of the national capital, with its malls, condominiums, top IT and media companies and educational institutes, has an unsavoury reputation when it comes to crime. He said that he hopes that will change when people learn more about what Noida is doing to combat criminals and make the city safer. Singh said that improvements like surveillance systems and the GIS will be implemented shortly.
