GIS Initiative - UP 100

Through UP-100 GIS (Geographic  Information System) application, we have succeeded in geo-tagging about 12 lakh locations in the state. This will help police locate victims calling Dial 100 as when they call their location will pop up in the monitor screen of the control room and they will be able to get timely help, Additional Director General, Traffic, Anil Agarwal said.With the exercise, the state police collected massive data of locations of rural areas that even Google did not have. Over 60 categories of locations that we have geo-tagged included temples, mosques, liquor shops, schools, crossing etc. he said.Asked about the GIS app, Mr. Agarwal said that this was developed exclusively for police department officers, who were selected from all eight zones at police station level to collect the data and geo-tag important locations.​
