Redevelopment of Old buildings in Mahrashtra With the Help of Geospatial technology

Maharashtra government has decided to use geographical information systems (GIS) and other spatial technologies for urban planning. The new plan for redevelopment of very old buildings would be created using Google Earth and Maps. An exhaustive database of these buildings with exact location will be created using mapping software and then loaded on Google Earth for public scrutiny.
In island city area of Mumbai, there are about 16,000 old dilapidated buildings built before 1960. The oldest have been built around 1920. They urgently need to be redeveloped in a planned manner.
