Hyderabad, July 20

Locating your destination and reaching it via the shortest route will soon become easier in the growing Hyderabad metrocity. A directory of digital maps, carefully prepared using satellite imagery, would give all the useful information required for the citizen as well as the tourists.

So, if you want to locate a particular colony in Malkajgiri, all you have to do is go to the index, get to the page displaying the Map of Malkajgiri, get the co-ordinates right and chalk out the route. The directory is a comprehensive city map guide, says Indian Resources Information & Management Technologies Ltd (IN-RIMT), which has brought it out.

Remote Sensing

Banks, hotels, hospitals, police stations, public utility services, water bodies, colonies, parks roads, railway lines, patterns of urban dwellings including the series of buildings and other user-friendly map information have been incorporated.

Tourists to Hyderabad, planners, engineers, corporates, logistic companies, retail, administrators are some of the groups that would find the map useful, said Dr Subba Rao Pavuluri, Managing Director of Ananth Technologies Ltd, the parent company of IN-RIMT.

The 188 page, large scale city guide map has drawn from remote sensing, geographical information systems and satellite imagery on scales ranging from 1:10,000 to 1:12,500. It is user friendly and enables people to navigate through the city with ease, he said in a press release.
