IR Executes GIS mapping pilot project
Indian Railways (IR) is on the verge of completing the digitization of land record comprising area, acquisition details, usages and land plans. The mapping of all fixed Railway assets have also started including land mapping on Geographical Information System (GIS) using ISRO’s Bhuvan Satellite Imagery. The system is integrated with Track Management System (TMS) of Indian Railways. Encroachment on railway land can be easily identified using the system. So far the GIS mapping pilot is being executed on the Delhi division and would be extended to the entire network on successful completion.
