The Delhi gov­ern­ment along with Geospa­tial Delhi Limited (GSDL) has planned to de­velop Delhi as a smart city with the vi­sion of in­te­grat­ing geospa­tial data from all city de­part­ments so as to en­able them for bet­ter co­or­di­nated anal­y­sis, plan­ning, gov­er­nance and man­age­ment of re­sources.

To achieve this man­date, the Delhi gov­ern­ment en­vis­ages in­te­grat­ing the data of all city de­part­ments on a sin­gle map to pro­vide sin­gle-win­dow ser­vices to its cit­i­zens and busi­nesses. Geospa­tial Delhi Limited (GSDL) was formed as a spe­cial pur­pose ve­hi­cle to ac­com­mo­date and f acil­i­tate the Delhi State Spa­tial Data In­fra­struc­ture ( DSSDI) project, says the re­port ti­tled Lo­ca­tion Based Ser­vices: Adding An­other Di­men­sion to Smart Cities by FICCI and PwC.

Un­der the DSSDI project, a huge data­base has been cre­ated with the ob­jec­tive of build­ing the 3D spa­tial datasets us­ing mod­ern tech­nolo­gies. A base map has been cre­ated through pho­togram­met­ric pro­ce­dures on a large scale (1:2000), us­ing aerial photography sub­stan­ti­ated by var­i­ous kinds of field sur­veys, namely to­po­graphic sur­veys, prop­erty sur­veys of dwelling units, un­der­ground util­ity sur­veys ( in­clud­ing wa­ter, sewer and en­ergy util­ity) and field photography in or­der to gen­er­ate tex­tures for the 3D mod­els of the build­ings.

The data is re­lated to and will be utilised by around 29 line de­part­ments and com­pa­nies that in­clude Delhi Devel­op­ment Author­ity, Delhi Dis­as­ter Man­age­ment Au t h o r i t y, D e l h i F i r e Ser­vices, Delhi In­te­grated Multi-Modal Tran­sit Sys­tem Limited, Delhi Jal Board, Delhi Metro Rail Cor­po­ra­tion Ltd, Delhi Pol­lu­tion Con­trol Com­mit­tee, Delhi State In­dus­try and In­fra­struc­ture Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion Limited, Delhi Tourism and Trans­por t Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion Limited, Delhi Transco Limited and Delhi Trans­por t Cor po­ra­tion, among oth­ers.

GSDL now plans to de­velop cloud-based GIS sys­tems for all line de­part­ments to as­sist them in op­er­a­tions. The GIS sys­tem will be an in­te­grated so­lu­tion wherein cross- depart­ment layer ac­cess will be pos­si­ble for bet­ter in­for­ma­tion-shar­ing and anal­y­sis. Un­der this ini­tia­tive, GSDL also plans to de­velop a process-driven ro­bust tech­no­log­i­cal so­lu­tion for con­tin­u­ous and seam­less data up­da­tion by line de­part­ments, the re­port says.

The key ob­jec­tives en­vis­aged un­der the cur­rent trans­for­ma­tion of Delhi in­clude ad­vanced vi­su­al­i­sa­tion of util­ity lines to sup­port plan­ning of DJB, IGL and power util­i­ties; ad­vanced ap­pli­ca­tions in the area of dis­as­ter man­age­ment, l and man­age­ment sys­tem, prop­erty tax fa­cil­i­ta­tion; a geo­por­tal of­fer­ing GIS ser­vices to line de­part­ments and cit­i­zens as cloud ser­vice provider and data and ap­pli­ca­tion in­te­gra­tion plat­form and 3D vi­su­al­i­sa­tion.
