Under the agreement, the company will provide the implementation and upkeep of a 3D city model and map stack for Mumbai and update it for three years. The geospatial solution will redefine urban planning, infrastructure development and emergency response and foster enhanced quality of life for residents. The unified mapping platform incorporates layers such as the 3D reality mesh model, base map with advanced features and street imaging, digital surface model (DSM) and digital terrain model (DTM) along with a change detection map to empower municipal departments, government agencies and citizens to make informed decisions that contribute to the city's growth.
