Default India's 'Google Earth' to curb crime

New Delhi: India’s own version of Google Earth is in the offing! If things go according to plan, the project could be a reality in just about a year’s time.
Modeled on the hugely-popular Google mapping engine, the project is waiting a go-ahead from the Union Cabinet.
The Science and Technology Ministry has already launched a pilot project of this technology in the Chandini Chowk area of Old Delhi.
In the first phase, live cameras will cover a 20-sq-km area, and the three-dimensional surveillance system – called Geographical Information System or GIS – will be used to trace all kinds of illegal activities; from civic lawlessness to traffic snarls and much more.

Its indeed a good step in tracking down the criminals.
Hopefully, this project will be a success.

We should not forget that its the same google earth that was showing maps of strategically important indian defence locations to the rest of the world. You cound see the entire lay out of indian parliament and president house on google earth.

And this data is available to anti social elements and terrorists as well. How do we use foreign technology to our best use remains to be seen.

According to me the better option for India is to launch its own satellites to carry out the task.
