Delhi, 1st December 2021 - Genesys International, today launched its pan India program to make the Digital Twin of entire Urban India. The launch program was inaugurated by Sh. Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI AAYOG, Government of India.
The creation of this very accurate 3D data will mean a host of applications would open up in high-definition mapping, which was hitherto not possible, for smart cars, e-commerce, logistics, gaming, utilities planning for next generation networks in telecom, renewable energy and in disaster management and emergency response. Moreover, with all the smart city components, the digital twin of cities will put India on the map with advanced cities that are now using this geospatial technology.
