Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) in the Indian city of Kolkata will shortly develop a map enhanced by satellite imageries of the entire city of Kolkata. It will provide the entire satellite mapping of the city, which gives a satellite mapping of the entire world. Kolkata will be one of the first Indian cities to have its own unique satellite map. The satellite map, developed through picture taken either through satellite or from the air, has been developed by Riddhi Communications and Netguru India has been assigned the task of maintaining the site. A GIS model has been utilised in preparing the satellite map of the city.
The satellite map will be a virtual map of the entire city and will have details of the tourist destinations, hotels and lodges, among other things and will also give graphical description of how to go from one place to another. The site, according to him, will be quite helpful for first-time visitors in the city. The map will also have a number of important information for Kolkata citizens. Kolkatans will now have detailed information about KMC-run health centres in the city, as well as information on whether there had been any particular disease that is on the rise in any particular ward. The map will also have details on schools and educational institutions, NGOs, the city’s transport system and other relevant details.
