MapmyIndia has introduced India’s first Nation-wide Digital Address System – eLoc – in the country. The eLoc is a simple and easy to use digital address system that will bring significant benefits to businesses, government and individuals across the nation. This system works on India’s most comprehensive accurate and precise door-step level, 3D, digital map database and turn-by-turn navigation solutions developed by MapmyIndia.
The eLoc is a short 6-character code of location, which will be easy to remember, type and share. It gives the precise map location of any place and turn-by-turn directions. One can also check out information about that particular place including reviews, photos, place’s owner, businesses, etc.
eLoc will also help Indian travelers and commuters search, share and navigate to destinations’ exact doorstep far more easily and quickly. It will also reduce time, money and fuel wastage and expenses for businesses in the ecommerce, transportation, logistics and field operations domains. MapmyIndia has invested over 200 crores over the last 20+ years in advanced mapping technologies and professional field surveys.
Commenting on the eLoc launch, Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia, said “MapmyIndia’s mission from the start has been to make the world better through maps and location technologies. We believe eLoc is a game changing milestone in India’s history, and like we mobile phones helped India leapfrog other countries, eLoc will leapfrog India to the forefront of mapping and navigation convenience and capabilities compared to the rest of the world. Seeing the government’s commitment to the ‘Digital India’ initiative I believe the time is ripe for India to move towards a digital address system.”
“MapmyIndia has already partnered with the Indian Space Research Organisation and its national statellite imagery service called Bhuvan, and the indigenous positioning system called Navic, to combine all these ingredients with MapmyIndia’s own mapping and navigation technologies to offer the best solution for India, most suitable for India, and a solution which we are proud to say is both the best for, and also made in India”, he added further.
