Remote sensing to help curb illegal construction in Delhi

India: To locate and curtail unauthorised buildings and encroachments in the Indian capital, Delhi government plans to make use of remote sensing satellite technology. With the help of a remote sensing satellite, officials can do aerial photography, manual videography, remote sensing and terrain mapping to detect construction anomalies. A senior official says, “We will use the latest techniques to keep a check on any unauthorised construction and encroachment by using remote sensing satellite to check and map Delhi for finding out any such construction.”
