Orissa Cheif Minister launches "Odisha Sampad"

          The Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik dedicated ‘Odisha Sampad’ a Web-based Block GIS Atlas developed by the Orissa Space Application Centre (ORSAC) to the people of the state on 4 January.

          The objective of ‘Odisha Sampad’ is to provide datasets of all the 314 blocks (village-wise) of the state relating to natural resources, environment, infrastructure, socio-economic and demography. The information content has been built on the basis of satellite image interpretation, survey at the block level and maps of other departments and agencies. The web atlas contains information on natural resources like land, utilization distribution of wastelands, forest lands, agriculture area, plantation, settlement, waterbodies etc.

          It also contains information on soil, slope, lithology, drainage, geomorphology, ground water potential, said an official. All the administrative bouridaries like state, block, GP, village, Assembly Constituencies, Parliament Constituency, Watershed, RF/PF boundary are available in the website. It also contains demographic and beneficiary information of each village, information on infrastructure like canal, road, rail network distribution, health and educational facilities, locational information on drinking water wells, banks, markets and telecommunication.

          The most important aspect of Orissa Sampad is providing development related data to the common public. The people can know about the development activities completed and continuing in their village from the website. It will also help in proper planning of proposed development activities at village/GP level.

          The datasets can be viewed by the public from ORSAC website www.orsac.org or from www.odishasampad.in. The second site is not yet up; displays an error. The website will soon be up I guess!

Where does Google get it's live traffic data from?

Referring to a post that I wrote earlier, Google’s - Live traffic Layer, ever wondered how Google collected this data? I was wondering the other day, how Google received live data to display it on their maps as a layer! I looked up the web and found something very interesting and am sharing the same with you all.As we all know, the traffic layer is available most accurately in several states in USA. Most major metro areas in the US have sensors embedded in their highways. These sensors track real time traffic data. Easy to miss at high speeds (hopefully anyway, traffic permitting), more commonly noticed may be the similar sensors that often exist at many busy intersections that help the traffic lights most efficiently let the most amount of people through. The information from these tracking sensors is reported back to the Department of Transportation (DOT). The DOT uses this data to update some of the digital signs that report traffic conditions in many metro areas. They also…

Two maps on the same page - Side-by-side

How good I am feeling to post a code example after such a long time! It's been all "news" over the past so many posts! Well now that I am finally doing a code example, I am posting a very highly requested code sample. Placing two Google Maps on the same page (Now that's simple you would say!), but side by side. Now this is the thing that most people struggle with. Well, implementing the second part is also very simple, as you will see in today's code.

    Let's see the code. Here it is!



    The output of the above code will be as seen in the result section above.

    As most of you will realize, there are two maps, one centered at "Pune" and other at "Noida". Why I chose these two locations? Well, just like that!...The main issue of concern is how the maps appeared side-by-side and not one below the other as would be normal behavior of two "div" elements used in the same page. Now here is the trick! Check out the the first
