Website with detailed maps of India launched
A specially designed website about detailed information of India’s physical features has been launched.
The website is called Nakshe and allows people to download maps of India's surface for free. The maps show the layout of the country.
People have to use an Aadhaar-based authentication process to download the maps. Earlier, these maps were available after a process of application and fees.
The data can be used to plan development projects and will also be useful in science and education. The maps are in 3D and give information about natural and man-made geographical features.
