The LAVASA Corporation Limited, a company set up for the purpose of developing a hill station lake township near Pune in India, has commissioned RMSI to design and develop its Geo Spatial Infrastructure. Spread over 9000 acres of lush green hills, lakes and forests, the development of this ultra-modern real estate is supported by GIS and other enabling technologies in the community’s earliest stages.
The first phase of GIS is bringing users from varying backgrounds from site engineers, architects, urban planners, design teams, project managers, environmentalists, tourism professionals and salesmen to a common geo-spatial platform. Users can access this web enabled GIS to view, query spatial / non-spatial data, create reports, and link documents to spatial features. 3D visualization and Spatial Analysis tools through ArcScene and Spatial Analyst allow users to get valuable 3-Dimensional analytical capabilities towards site selection and slope analysis.
RMSI and LAVASA are jointly working to define the road map for GIS implementation which charts out the components of the system from a present web-based GIS and a Document Management System to a municipal automation system to manage utility networks, generate utility billings, enable automated building permissions workflows, link customer relationship management (eCRM) systems, and build organizational ERP systems.
This investment in IT systems is expected to bring in benefits to various LAVASA stakeholders in terms of better efficiencies, reduced turnaround timings, customer satisfaction and innovative cost reduction practices.
