SURVEY INDIA 2014
Maps of India represented Compare Infobase Ltd at the Survey India 2014, the first National Conference focused on Survey techniques and tools held from 9-10th July 2014, New Delhi. Over 300 delegates participated in the conference and exhibition programme.

The main purpose of the event was to provide a platform for bringing together all stakeholders; government, industry, practitioners and academia under one roof for discussion, debates, state of the art techniques and new equipments in the field of Survey and Mapping. It was a great opportunity for the industry to showcase their equipments and tools and learn about upcoming innovations.

Maps of India were one of the sponsors of the event and we actively communicated our work agenda and products through our stalls at the exhibition. People not only showed interest, but appreciated the work Compare Infobase has been doing in the mapping domain. We showcased our numerous atlases, maps, MOI - CD, diverse mapping projects and apps developed to the attendees. It was a vital and interactive forum to engage with the users from across the country and abroad.

The highlights of the event was the Panel Discussion “Surveying and mapping @ Crossroads where our CEO, Mr. Simarprit Singh, one of the panelist at the event, discussed the current industry standards and the challenges faced with regard to maps and portals, with a focus on crowd sourcing and its growing capacity.

Panel Discussion was an intriguing session wherein distinguished people from various government and private sectors debated and answered questions that are critical to the education, practice and development of Survey and Mapping sector. The conference was a milestone for the Survey and Mapping community in India who today are in dire need of strong regulations and guidelines regarding land survey and mapping.
