North Indian city of Gurugram to be GIS mapped

India: The residents of the Indian city of Gurugram will soon be able to access all information regarding their city on a single platform known as One Map Gurgaon.

The first initiative in north India, ‘One Map Gurgaon’ will provide information on various government departments, streets of the city, residential and commercial properties, electricity distribution etc.

The work on GIS began two years earlier and the system is expected to be functional by next month, reported The Times of India.

Once operational, the residents will be able to lodge complaints related to civic amenities, and access information on CCTV cameras installed in the city, mobile towers and other government facilities and services.

Currently, the system is being updated with data, which is being collected using drone-mapping technology with the help of Ministry of Science.

Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority CEO V Umashankar says that the system would offer an advantage over Google as the latter uses user-generated data, while the data on One Map Gurgaon is specifically collected for the platform
