Mangalore, Jun 4: The Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology (KSCST) has come forward to prepare a digital map of areas under the jurisdiction of the Mangalore City Corporation using high-resolution satellite imaging and the global positioning system.
The map will provide details of the status of infrastructure in the jurisdiction of the corporation.
The corporation resolved to authorise the Standing Committee for Taxation, Finance and Appeals to study the matter and take a decision on whether to approve or reject the proposal. This subject was referred to the committee because the corporation will have to pay Rs. 8.54 lakh to the KSCST for preparing the map.
Details of the agenda tabled in the House said the digital map would help the corporation prepare a comprehensive development plan. The map will give details about existing railway lines, roads, parks, green belts, buildings and population, among other things.
