|About a decade back
Many data providers of the Government of India
Initiated the process of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI)
And the journey continued and still continues…
Now, a user department of the Government of India (Planning Commission) proposes
The establishment of The National GIS.
Which intends to provide a well maintained collection of geospatial datasets
To allow national use, published via standard web services
So that government and private sector entities and citizens
have the same national view of GIS data.
This has recharged the debate, the discussions, the deliberations…
India starts talking and is talking again.
Will it act?
