The key objective of the project was to create a detailed map to enable the concerned authorities to visualize the utility and property details of the municipalities along with other infrastructure. This enabled the authorities to identify the issues that were restricting the development of the municipalities.
The primary features of the regions of interest that were mapped for this project include:
We conducted baseline surveys of the land features of the assigned municipalities to update the infrastructure scenario at the beginning of the project. This process involved field survey and documenting the raw data associated with the features surveyed to create a foolproof database. The natural infrastructure and the socio-economic structures were mapped from the details of the field survey. Our surveyors visited multiple municipalities to verify the existence of these features. The map created based on this highlights the administrative boundaries of the state.
The municipalities provided us with a few pre-defined themes for preparing the base maps. We presented these themes visually on the base maps created by us.
Our surveyors conducted door-to-door surveys to document the holding details of the properties belonging to those municipalities for which the work had been assigned to us. This survey included noting down the names of the actual property owners, verifying whether a property was being used for commercial or residential purpose etc. The purpose of this land-use mapping was to facilitate the town planning process.
The database of the properties in the concerned municipalities was provided to us by the Municipal Corporation. We interlinked this with the spatial data in the GIS application developed by us. Additionally, we used the GIS application to maintain the track record of the revenue and to increase it as per the requirement.
We delivered highly accurate base maps complete with the key features of the regions of interest. The maps highlight the issues that were preventing urban development in the concerned regions. Additionally, we suggested urban developmental plans for these regions to the client.
