ISRO Maps More Accurate than Google maps

Kohima, India: Asserting that GIS technology is emerging as a powerful tool for decentralised planning, a workshop, held in Kohima, capital of the northeastern state of Nagaland, called for utilisation of vital data and maps made available by ISRO through state-level remote sensing centres for decentralised planning at state, district and block levels.

The day-long workshop on space-based information support for decentralised planning (SIS-DP) was organised jointly by the Nagaland GIS and Remote Sensing Centre, the North East Space Application Centre (NESAC), Shillong, the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), Dehradun, the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Hyderabad, and ISRO.

Giving an overview of SIS-DP in the North-east, NESAC director S Sudhakar suggested that state government departments use ISRO maps and data that are much more up to date and have higher resolution than Google maps.
