India map details on Net
13 June 2006

About 60-70 percent of the land area of India could be officially available on the Internet based on several wide parameters including latitude, longitude, altitude, water bodies and forest cover in about a year's time.Till today, policy did not permit publishing Indian map details on the Net. Even now, the exact level of access has to be decided based on National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) policy that would address issues like costing, copyright and licences and value addition. However, some broad details of map should now be available with the recent approval of National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) by Union Cabinet. This is likely to generate a huge business opportunity for the Geographical Information System (GIS) firms from various Government agencies during the next few years.
