Satellite images to map Development of Lucknow

To ensure perfection in drafting the city’s development plan, the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) has decided to get satellite images of its development area. LDA plans to get aerial pictures of the city and land use-mapping of major urban/rural objects. According to LDA authorities, the state government has already decided to divide the Lucknow development area in 22 zones for better planned development and that satellite images will help design the layout plans of the zones. The Lucknow development area is spread over 1,400 square kms approximately, including 350 square kms of urban area and 1,050 square kms of rural area. The LDA will hire a consultant to prepare the ‘base map’ of development area with details of urban and rural settlements, cultivated land, forest, vegetated land/orchards, barren land, waterlogged land, water bodies, canals, brick kilns, national and state highways, other roads, power transmission lines and embankments.
