MapmyIndia has partnered with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and Bhuvan, to enhance its mapping and navigation technologies, reports the Economic Times. Note that the company has also tied up with the Central Board of Direct Taxes for ‘location intelligence tracking’ and with the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana for LPG distribution. While not much is clear on these partnerships, a pdf hosted by the National Remote Sensing Centre indicates that MapmyIndia and Bhuvan will have several collaborative applications. This will include consumer location-based apps, enterprise location-based SaaS and government location based SaaS products. It will also include setting up ‘InTouch’ an IoT platform with tracking and a location analytics platform called ‘Insight’. Interestingly, MapmyIndia mentions that its eLoc initiative, which was launched this month, is also being used by government agencies at present. The system essentially lets users assigning a unique 6 character code for any address across India, which can be entered into MapmyIndia to find the building level directions. It’s worth noting that MapmyIndia had also recently tied up with machine to machine communications company Aeris for offering geospatial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in India. Aeris offers IoT solutions like fleet telematics, connected vehicles, monitoring and control, healthcare and other M2M IoT solutions to enterprises. These partnerships are a part of a trend we are going to see as connected devices start becoming a norm, leading to companies and government agencies from different verticals joining hands to offer connected and integrated solutions.
