MapmyIndia has joined hands with Survey of India to combine its map data collection and processing experience to use and provide value added services (VAS) to Survey of India maps. This allows it to accelerate provision of map based value added services and navigation services across all cities and towns in India and bring benefits of digital mapping to every citizen in India. The alliance is particularly attractive as it boosts MapmyIndia's already extensive India coverage and opens new vistas for business with government and defence organisations. It is India's leading map and GPS navigation services provider

The Surveyor General of India praised MapmyIndia as "a leading reputed navigational and location based GIS company in India in the digital mapping and cartography space", and expressed confidence that "this alliance would help fulfil the demand for high quality maps and values to GIS based data sets".

As the national premier mapping agency for India, Survey of India wishes to actively engage with leading private players in the geo-spatial information market place to utilise their digital topographic/cartographic data sets and bring innovative solutions for the benefit of Indian society.

On this occasion, Rakesh Verma, MD, MapmyIndia says: "Our alliance with Survey of India validates the perception of MapmyIndia as one of the premier digital mapping agencies in India. This alliance also allows us to bring our years of experience in building high quality maps for leading private firms to service the government and defence sectors. The symbiotic nature of the association, where MapmyIndia can use Survey of India maps to provide value added services and vice versa is a huge step forward for the navigation and GIS industries in India."

Lauding MapmyIndia's efforts in the navigation and location-based service space, the Surveyor General of India said: "I am confident that MapmyIndia will meet the wider expectations of the Indian society and GIS users through provision of cost-effective, user friendly, timely and accurate info to them and prove themselves to be the pioneer and trend setter in their specialised field through use of innovative techniques and technologies for their salient benefits."
