India is amongst the fastest growing economies of the world and it is essential that it sustainably maintains its growth momentum in order to move towards its mission of reducing poverty and increasing the average standard of living in the country. With a growing urban population it is necessary that India focuses significantly on its transportation systems. It is imperative that the government and the industry collaborate extensively to build, upgrade and manage world class transport infrastructure systems in India. Geospatial technology can provide powerful and efficient tools to construct and analyse transportation networks that evaluate and communicate data and then transform and integrate that data into information to create a transportation ecosystem.

The aim of the transportation infrastructure segment is to address the entire transport system in an integrated manner and focus not only on the geospatial and other technologies that go into making these systems intelligent but also ensures that they are safe, secure and environmentally sustainable.
