Case Study

HINDUSTANTIMES.COM SEPT-2019 The Survey of India is working on digitally mapping the country over the next two years. These very high-resolution digital maps will be three-dimensional and available for free. “Currently, we do not have high-resolution digital maps of India. These maps will be far more accurate so governments will be able to plan better. The maps will be available for free to all government departments, and any commercial projects developed using these maps will have to pay a percentage of profits to the Survey of India,” said department of science and technology (DST) secretary Prof Ashutosh Sharma.
