In what could be termed as a good initiative to protect the government lands from the encroachments, VMRDA will soon map all their land parcels spread over the two districts of Visakhapatnam and Vizianagaram. During a video-conference on Thursday with Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), which is an international supplier of geographic information system (GIS) software, web GIS, and geodatabase management applications.
VMRDA Commissioner P. Koteswara Rao said with constant urbanization and changing topography, a practical tool to monitor the lands have been in the reckoning for the past few months. Now we are moving towards high-end technologies and web applications using accurate DGPS survey data and GIS software to monitor changes in its lands real-time, at the mere click of a button,” he said.
To invest in Visakhapatnam/Vizag here is the best tailored options.
Stating further he said that a GIS can be considered as a tool for the integration and analysis of geographically-referenced data and GIS is a perfect device to identify, locate, and for mapping various types of lands associated with different landform units. And these systems will enable VMRDA officials to maintain a digital record of all the properties that include ownership, approved building plan, and others. More to the point, it will also help them in detecting any encroachments on the government land. Complete details of land ownership will also help avoid the fraudulent sale of the properties.
Also, the ‘Change Detection Software’ will enable Planning, Estate, and Allotment wings of VMRDA to work in tandem, he said. We are starting a pilot project from January 1, taking VMRDA land parcel of 108.91 acres at Pardesipalem, he said.
