The state government will develop GIS-based 3D models of the four cities namely Udaipur, Kota, Ajmer and Jodhpur. Rajasthan government has approved a proposal for developing Geographic Information System (GIS) based 3D models of these cities. CM Ashok Gehlot in a financial proposal has approved this project for Rs. 106.46 crore.
In these four cities, CM Gehlot will undertake the Rajdhara Satellite Imagery Repository initiatives as well. With this, it will be possible to propose land use in city master plans, build new highways, flyovers, colonies, and drainage plans, as well as other ground-level works, large-scale infrastructure development, transportation planning, land planning, and town planning, among other things.
Making efficient evaluations, simulations, and plans will be simpler. According to the statement, a virtual tour of the city may be taken using the produced 3D model and Augmented reality or virtual reality. In addition, a "repository" of satellite images of Rajasthan from various eras would be set up on the Rajdhara platform. According to the needs of various departments, this would make it easier to analyze land usage, land cover, changes in reservoirs/water sources and forest areas, assessment of crop yields, the growth and spread of cities etc.
All of the state's districts will create Lavkush Gardens, and Rs.66 crore have been allotted for this purpose. The ecotourism industry will benefit from this. In these gardens, replicas of forests and wildlife will be created so that kids may learn about protecting the environment and wildlife. There will be room for an exhibition as well as eco-trial trails that will be built. These gardens are meant to raise awareness of environmental conservation, according to the statement.
