New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit inaugurated the Delhi State Spatial Data Infrastructure Project in New Delhi. The geo-portal with geo-spatial data of the Capital has been developed by the Information Technology Department of the Delhi Government.

Describing the portal as unique and the first of its kind in the country, Sheila said the project would set new benchmarks in urban management in the country. It will make underground and overground utilities in digital form accessible to over 30 departments, reports The Hindu.

"The whole range of spatial and attribute data will be accessible through a geo-portal that will function as a single window through which associated bodies can access information and decision-support systems. The portal will provide access to the line departments of the Delhi Government like the New Delhi Municipal Council, Municipal Corporation of Delhi, Delhi Development Authority and Delhi Police besides Union and State government bodies," the Chief Minister added.

Sheila said the portal would incorporate 3D modeling of the entire range of public utilities in the Capital. The availability of underground utilities in digital form will enable the line department concerned to undertake maintenance programmes as well as locate faults in the system with precision. The Chief Minister said the new platform would also help in planning of commercial establishments like hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and parks.
