Yesterday, MapmyIndia announced the launch of Mappls, an integrated GIS & GPS enterprise solutions division committed to addressing important challenges faced by Indian government agencies and the private sector. One of the first solutions from the Mappls division is Mappls SafeWorld Computer-aided Dispatch (CAD) Solution for Emergency Response, which enables authorities to rapidly respond to incidents of crime, emergency, and terrorism in India.Mappls SafeWorld CAD Solution for Emergency Response combines five critical elements:

  1. MapmyIndia’s Map Data with detailed vector maps of India, including house and building level detail in full 3D
  2. Computer-aided Dispatch Software to match call taking, fleet monitoring, dispatch and communication workflow for emergency responders
  3. GPS tracking hardware which can withstand the environment conditions and communicate effectively
  4. GPS navigation devices that can assist the driver in reaching the incident, down to house level, quickly and precisely
  5. Seamless and intelligent systems Integration including CCTV surveillance, communication infrastructure and workflow of the emergency responders to ensure to ensure intelligent, efficient end-to-end solution


Mappls SafeWorld CAD solution is an end-to-end solution, which can be deployed, controlled and operated by government agencies or corporates such as: Police, Fire & Ambulance, Homeland Security, Counter-Terrorism, Defence, Disaster Management, and People & Asset Safety.A city’s police department, for instance, can use the solution to accurately identify the address given by the distress caller on a digital map. They can then automatically identify the nearest police station and nearest available and appropriate vehicle from where the incident has been reported. Once they have identified the vehicle, the police department can automatically communicate the GPS coordinates of the incident to the responding vehicle. GPS navigation will guide the vehicle to the incident site, using house and building level navigation. The whole process will be monitored in real time by the control room until successful closure. In addition, the Mappls solution help citizens and government officials monitor and transparently share information regarding whether police vehicles and personnel are patrolling assigned routes/locations at assigned times, as well as the turn-around times to ensure rapid response to emergencies.

Since 1995, MapMyIndia has successfully delivered GIS solutions to over 1000 Indian enterprises, both government and corporate, GPS navigation and tracking systems to over 1,50,000 Indian passenger and commercial vehicles, and web and mobile location-based applications to over 10,00,000 individual users. Their extensive work and experience in the GIS and GPS space has provided them with the knowhow and the positioning to deliver end-to-end, state-of-the-art, systems-integrated GIS & GPS solutions.


“We started MapmyIndia in 1995 with a mission to digitally map all of India, and bring the immense benefits of digital maps to governments, corporates and individuals across India,” explains Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia. “The current social, political and business environment in India, poses both challenges as well as opportunities to Indian governments and corporates – that of ensuring the safety and security of our people, and of delivering inclusive growth and making our economy vibrant again.
