Kerala CM to launch IT Mission's local mapping project

Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 21 (UNI) Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will launch Kerala State IT Mission’s ambitious ‘Mapathon Keralam’ project, a crowd-sourcing mapping initiative on Wednesday, which aims at creating micro-level maps of the entire state for identifying all the natural and physical assets that will help effectively address the problem of recurrent natural calamity situations.

Vijayan will address the mapping volunteers of National Service Scheme (NSS) from various engineering colleges in the state, through video conferencing at 1500 hrs, formally kick-starting the innovative project, an official press release said.

Through the Mapathon Keralam, which has as its crore the concept of ‘Let us make our map’, the Kerala government will create extensive local maps of the state covering its entire nook and cranny.

It will encompass the entire spectrum of details, including physical infrastructure, natural resources and other useful information, for planning and implementing flood control and rehabilitation activities.

The project is led by the Kerala State Spatial Data Infrastructure (KSDI) under the Kerala State IT Mission and supported by institutions like International Centre for Free and Open Source Software (ICFOSS) and National Service Scheme (NSS).

The free online map, titled Open Street Map, is used for this mapping project as part of the government’s policy of strengthening activities focused on free knowledge and Free and Open Source Software.
