MapmyIndia has collaborated with India's space agency ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) which will enhance the quality of its 3D maps. The company is developing new maps as part of its foray into the metaverse. The company makes mapping solutions for automotive and mobility, consumer and enterprise segments. It serves the Indian market under the MapmyIndia brand and overseas market under the brand Maapls.
Rohan Verma, Executive Director and CEO at MapmyIndia said the collaboration with ISRO is showing the way for an end-to-end, indigenous, atmanirbhar (self-reliant), Public Private Partnership which is bringing the benefits of geospatial mapping, satellite data, earth observation, analytics and consumer-centric location based services all together. He said users will be able to see vegetation maps or heat maps, air quality maps, and other information on exact locations that are searched by people or on routes of their interest, through the collaboration with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
Verma said, "Using the Mappls portal or Mappls app of MapmyIndia, a common commuter can see the route and navigation from Leh to Manali as an example, and also see in real time, whether there's snow cover and where all the snow cover is, which is coming from earth observation data from ISRO. Finally, this RealView that we are bringing to market which is from the skies or space using satellite imagery from ISRO, from the drones and the road based vehicles that MapmyIndia is flying and driving to create fully three dimensional high definition and 360 degree data will create innumerable applications and benefits for citizens."
