Travelling? Use the new road atlas

February 11, 2006 15:21 IST
The country's first comprehensive road atlas, developed by the Survey of India in collaboration with a private company, was launched on Saturday.

"India Road Atlas is a unique product and only one of its kind in India," science and technology minister Kapil Sibal said.

A geographic information system application called Map Plus Professional and a Digital School Atlas were also launched on the occasion.

The Road Atlas and the Map Plus Professional have been developed jointly by the Survey of India and Eicher Goodearth, a part of the Eicher group.

"The book, priced at Rs 370, is a useful guide for travellers and road users. It would be made available at all prominent locations across the country," Sibal added.
