The impact of the Modi government’s Make in India and Atmanirbhar Bharat campaign is now visible. After getting the Sandes app in place of Koo and Whatsapp instead of Twitter, now the country is going to get the option of Google Map (Google Maps) and Google Earth (Google Earth). Indeed, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has partnered with location and navigation technology solution provider MapMyIndia to develop the Indigenous navigation app. ISRO and MapMyIndia company together will provide indigenous navigation service to India.
After partnering with ISRO, MapmyIndia CEO Rohan Verma said that satellite image and observation data will be made available by ISRO, while MapmyIndia will provide the service digitally. He said that it would prove to be a milestone in India’s self-reliant India campaign. Rohan Verma said that the citizens of the country would not have to depend on foreign organizations like Google Map and Google Earth for navigation services, maps and geospatial services.
Will take help of NavIC and Bhuvan
Mapping portals and virtual location data services will be available to the people through this app. ISRO’s Department of Space said that the navigation app to be developed will take the help of indigenous satellite service like NavIC and Bhuvan. Let us tell you that NavIC (Navigation with Indian Constellation) is an indigenous navigation system built in India, which is designed by ISRO itself. Bhuvan is also a central geo-portal developed and hosted by ISRO.
These features will also be available in the app
Through this app, ISRO will provide real satellite image to users. This app will be available for free and no advertisements will be shown on it. Its InchPres will also be similar to Google Map and it will show the border areas based on the central government guidelines. The unity and integrity of India will be taken care of in this app..
