All railways assets are to be mapped and these will be subsequently used to develop Indian Railways’ GIS portal, authorities said on Thursday.
Railways have large number of assets including land assets that need to be effectively monitored, managed and maintained. As railway operations have wide spatial coverage, GIS mapping of assets on railways can be used for better management.
Work is in progress for GPS based mapping of railways assets including land assets on GIS platform likely to be completed by December, 2018.
An MOU has been signed with Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS) and CRIS is developing this application. Satellite imagery is being taken from Bhuvan Platform of ISRO. An MOU between ministry of railways and ISRO has been signed for mutual cooperation in various phases.
After development of GIS portal, it may be possible to identify new encroachment around the station by comparing satellite imagery which are updated by ISRO at a regular interval.
