The state government is continuously working for better service delivery in the state. In this sequence, Chief Minister Shri Ashok Gehlot has approved the proposal of geo-tagging the assets, schemes and works of various departments and undertakings of the state through Geographic Information System (GIS) and linking them with the map. Initially, financial approval of Rs 153.80 crore has been given for this. GIS is a system designed to collect, store, modify and analyze data regarding geographic conditions on the Earth’s surface. In addition, the task of managing and presenting data can also be done from this system.
With this approval of Shri Gehlot, now all the departments will be able to link the geospatial data of their assets, facilities, schemes and programs to the GIS based platform through the statewide GIS system. This will help in decision making and monitoring in relation to resource collection and distribution, policy planning of various schemes and programmes. With the above decision, land-marked survey of various departmental schemes and works will improve service delivery at the regional level. Better management of resources during disaster or epidemic will also be possible through this system. Also, all the government buildings of the state will be available on a single map and it will be easy for the general public to reach these buildings. It is noteworthy that a mobile app has been developed under geo-tagging. The app is being used extensively by various departments like Women and Child Development Department, PHED, Ground Water Department, Medical and Health Department etc.
