New Delhi, July 2022: Genesys International Corporation Limited, the pioneer in introducing the first street imaging maps in India, has today announced a partnership with Google, enabling the launch of Google Street View across the country and assisting in the advancement of the Indian mapping revolution.
The Genesys constellation will now serve to bring to life India’s lively streets and lanes, where citizens will be able to explore sites and view man-made wonders from the comfort of their own home or anywhere else, using their mobile device.
The capability and technology with Genesys is now enabling capture of almost 150,000 unique kms of street imaging data. To put this number in perspective- the island city of Mumbai is 5000 unique kilometers. Genesys has and is building one of the biggest imaging platforms in India – across both street and aerial – in sync with our PM’s vision of Digital India that is reflected in the new geospatial policy.
Over the next 12 months Genesys is working to cover all of urban India street imaging, spanning over a million kilometers, making this the largest street imaging exercise in the country.
Mr. Sajid Malik, Chairman and Managing Director of Genesys International Corporation Limited, commented on the partnership with Google, saying, “We were one of the first Indian firm to perform street imaging of all major cities in India,” highlighting the pioneering work in the field. “Our fleet is still swiftly photographing Indian cities, bringing to life our city’s amazing tapestry of streets and landmarks and allowing us to comfortably visit our old neighbourhoods or plan our trips.”
Malik continued, “Google Maps has always been at the forefront of geospatial technology, and we are honoured to be an enabler of their efforts by offering the best technology to India and its people.” We are delighted to be a part of the Google Street View programme, and we feel that our partnership will go a long way towards offering the most helpful and engaging mapping experience for people across India.”
