Chandigarh: Chandigarh is the first city in the country to implement the technology of aerial survey and resurvey under the 3D-GIS mapping of the area using the technology of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Drones. Sector-7 Chandigarh is the 1st area to be surveyed in Pilot Phase of the Drone to achieve the component of Aerial Survey and resurvey for UT Chandigarh.
The Drones have been implemented in collaboration with PEC Chandigarh and IIIT Delhi, said Deputy Commissioner Chandigarh Ajit Balaji Joshi during the review of the project on Friday.
Joshi said, “The technology of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) (Drones) is capable of delivering Cadastral maps overlaid on the Digital Elevation Map (tiff/jpg format) with minimum of ±2.5 cm accuracy, Orthomosaic 1:10000 (jpg/tiff format) and Digital elevation maps for sectors 7.”
He added that the aim of the 3D-GIS mapping using drones is to build a cost effective and efficient system in order to map and measure each and every corner or dimension or the legacy data of every property in UT Chandigarh.
“It will also help in gathering data using drone technology to generate high resolution 3D maps/imaginaries of Chandigarh,” stated Joshi.
The 3D-GIS mapping using drones aims at change detection: Requirement of superimposing the already existed cadastral maps of UT Chandigarh over the drone based 3D maps to study the changes that have taken place over the time like building violation or encroachments. It will develop highly responsive geographical information system where in a single click, the details of each and every property in the UT Chandigarh can be retrieved.
