DSSDI Project launched

Survey of India, the National Mapping Agency and Government of Delhi today joined their hands to make Delhi a world-class city by empowering the people of Delhi through geo-spatial data by launching Delhi State Spatial Data Infrastructure (DSSDI) project. The project is an outcome of a pilot project by Department of Science and Technology, government of India on 3D GIS in Chandani Chowk area. As part of the project, a monitoring room was established to receive images from 10 cameras placed at vantage points to do the change detection on real time as occurring on ground. Government of Delhi felt that the 3D database is immensely useful for various applications and it should immediately be created for entire NCT of Delhi and should be completed well before Common Wealth games-2010. The project will cover a total area of NCT Delhi of approx 1500 Sq. km

Development of a 3D-GIS database for NCT of Delhi will be carried out by Survey of India in respect of all lands and buildings and all under ground utilities within the NCTD. The project will facilitate detection of illegal constructions by the government of Delhi and enable monitoring of any changes being made in respect of land and building in GNCTD on real time basis.

The project comprises two major components, Land Information System (LIS) of NCT of Delhi and Urban Spatial Information System (USIS). The LIS will have up to date cadastral information. The USIS will meet the spatial data/information requirements of urban planning for routine functions of the line departments of Delhi.

The innovative technologies developed for the project will be used for disaster management, traffic management, security of important building and other valuable infrastructural assets in Delhi.

The Survey of India and government of Delhi will also be launching special purpose vehicles (SPV) Geo-spatial Delhi, which will be authorized to keep the records of the land-holdings ownership, land use etc. The project is going to be harbinger of many such SDI projects within the country, which will give a very sound foundation for e-governance and knowledge based informed society in Indian urban areas.
