ISRO and MapmyIndia team up to take on Google Maps, Google Earth in India


In a bid to take on Google Maps, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and digital mapping and location-based deep-tech company MapmyIndia on Friday announced a new initiative to offer a fully indigenous, mapping portal and geospatial services.

The services will combine the power of MapmyIndia’s digital maps and technologies with ISRO’s catalogue of satellite imagery and earth observation data.

Through the combined partnership with ISRO, MapmyIndia’s end user maps, apps and services would be a much better, more detailed and comprehensive, as well as privacy-centric, hyper-local and indigenous mapping solution for Indians, compared to foreign map apps and solutions, the company said.
