With ISRO partnership and new rules, MapmyIndia hopes to take on Google Maps’ monopoly with an Indian alternative

MapmyIndia has partnered with ISRO as it seeks to build a better India alternative to Google Maps.

CEO Rohan Verma said, “ISRO’s imagery gives a bird’s-eye-view of how India looks from above. But it also has a huge set of imagery like weather data and landslide information. When all of this gets combined, it is a more powerful and indigenous alternative to Google Maps.”

The ISRO partnership will plug MapmyIndia’s lack of satellite imagery and also give it access to map-based analytics and insights about the weather, pollution, agricultural output, land-use changes, flood and landslide disasters, etc. For a company that has been in the mapping business much longer than Google, it will be a huge fillip to take on the global leader.
