Geocoding

Most of the international geocoding services enable a very poor match for India. Indian cities, as a rule, do not follow standard house numbering schemes as is prevalent in the US and Europe. In the absence of such systems, one requires comprehensive grampanchayat, village and habitation datasets in rural areas and building name, house number and plot number datasets for urban areas. Lack of such publicly available datasets make geocoding a significant challenge in the Indian context.

  • To tackle this, AInsight has compiled comprehensive high granularity datasets of India.
  • 1. List of all grampanchayats, list of all villages, list of all habitations in each village for rural areas
  • 2. List of building names, house numbers and plot numbers for Mumbai Metropolitan region. Similar datasets for other metro cities will shortly be added.
