Compare Infobase, the mother company of MapsofIndia.com is associating with Noida Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (a joint venture of Govt. of India and Govt. of U.P.) for the development, manufacture supply and installation of digital map(s) of NMRC network at the Headquarters of Noida Metro Rail Corporations Limited or at the premises instructed with regard thereto.
Noida Metro commenced in July 2018, which serves Noida-Greater Noida Expressway and highways connecting Delhi and its surrounding towns.
This rapid transit system connects the twin cities Noida and Greater Noida in Gautam Budh Nagar, Uttar Pradesh. The network consists of one line known as Aqua-Line which serves 21 stations, including elevated and at-grade stations, of which 15 stations are in Noida and the remaining six in Greater Noida.
Speaking on the development, Simarprit Singh CEO of Compare Infobase Ltd has expressed,
“Mapping is the best example of a mashup between art and science. It requires consistency and accuracy to be credible and current to be of any use. At Compare Infobase, we believe quality comes before quantity and solving client’s problems is the only way to succeed.”
With its onset, Noida Metro becomes the fifth-longest operational metro network after Delhi Metro, Hyderabad Metro, Chennai Metro and Namma Metro.
In the collaboration, Compare Infobase will take care of the digital maps which would be installed at the NMRC premises. Besides, it will be accountable for labour and other compliance related to safety and concerns pertaining to the work.
Though, the primary purpose of the digital mapping would remain to help users to efficiently use the metro which includes the function of the stations as well as the interchange between lines.
