Congratulations to your team. Kerala State is one of the states which is on top of implementing/promoting FOSS in India. We are looking forward for more technical details on the project. Is there any document that can be shared with the community?

Hi all,
We are proud to share with you that Keltron, a PSU under government of
Kerala, has completed development of an integrated, GIS based total
solution for Kolkata Police. This consists of,
Development of Large scale map of the area
A GIS based area traffic control system
Vehicle Tracking system
GIS based distress call response management system etc

The complete solution is developed purely on Free and Open Source
solutions, including PostGIS, OpenLayers, Mapserver, GRASS &
Geodjango. Technology demonstration and pilot run for all modules are
over and large scale deployment is going on. AFAIK, this is the
biggest FOSS Geo initiative in India, and one of the major GIS project
in the government sector. I hope this project will help us in bringing
other projects also into the FOSS way.

Thanks to OSGeo. The very existence of the Foundation helped us to
convince our client that FOSS Geo tools are matured, and are actively
supported. We also thank the user and developer community around the
major FOSS tools, for their fast response to our questions and

Thanks & Regards,

Sajith VK
