Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav (AKAM) is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture, and achievements.
As part of the celebrations, we are calling upon all storytellers, innovators, and disruptors to propose innovative solutions that address pressing urban challenges faced by Indian cities
Collaborate and co-create ingenious geospatial data stories powered by open data. These data stories can include interactive visualizations, informative story maps and dashboards that provide valuable insights to reimagine the developing needs of Indian cities.
Geospatial technology is the future of enhanced service delivery in urban areas. It provides a common language to decipher the context of urban India and gain actionable insights by integrating all types of locational & real time intelligence.
To propel the urban geospatial ecosystem, Urban Geospatial Data Stories Challenge aims to combine the power of geospatial data, analytics, and open innovation.
The Challenge is an opportunity for passionate individuals and ecosystem partners to co-create visionary narratives of future urban India. The innovative ideas and stories will help experience the potential of geospatial capabilities in cities and foster adoption of geospatial technologies.
Showcased at the Smart Cities: Smart Urbanization Conference to be organized by Smart Cities Mission, MOHUA in Surat in February 2022.
