City properties to get unique IDs

BANGALORE: Properties in Bangalore will very soon be identified by its latitude and longitude values.
Previous property identification numbers had to be phased out because 98 new wards have been added to the new and expanded Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike.
The effort will be to provide unique identifications so that they remain intact, irrespective of any such changes in the future.
The Palike will use geographical information systems and latitude and longitude values (Lat-Long) to number and identify property within its limits.
“We began working on this project from scratch about a year and a half ago and now we have completed 90 per cent of the project,” said Sheshadri, information technology advisor to the BBMP.
He said 14.6 lakh properties have been identified using this technology so far.
This technology would help identify the location of a property based on online geographical maps that have been developed, he said.
The map will be based on Google maps and other online maps, he said.
“The core area has no problem as most of them have been assessed and identified,” said Sheshadri. It is the newly-included wards where there was no systematic mechanism to store information and share it with the Palike.
