1 GIS Initiative in Indian Railways S. S. Mathur General Manager (Corporate Coordination) Centre for Railway Information Systems

2 Need for a GIS system Indian Railways is a geographically distributed organization Assets are spread across the country Assets are of three types – Fixed assets, distributed: railway track, overhead electrified lines – Fixed assets, location-specific: stations, yards – Moving assets: locomotives, coaches, wagons, track machines 04/05/20152Centre for Railway Information Systems

3 Need for GIS (cont’d) GIS makes it easy to visualize different inputs and outputs from applications It simplifies the management of geographically distributed assets IR’s Long Range Decision Support System (LRDSS) uses it 04/05/20153Centre for Railway Information Systems

4 Base map To be developed using Survey of India topographic sheets, enhanced and updated To contain commonly mapped features such as land use, rivers, built up areas, roads, bridges, railway lines, police stations, etc. Would interface with different applications to utilize the map interface To facilitate input as well as depict output from different applicatinos 04/05/20154Centre for Railway Information Systems

5 First phase Develop a layer showing all land owned by Indian Railways – Enhance and update base map through satellite imagery wherever required – Digitize existing Railway land records – Provide a layer for Railway-owned land 04/05/20155Centre for Railway Information Systems

6 Subsequent layers Fixed infrastructure – Track, Bridges – Cuttings and embankments, tunnels – Overhead Electrical equipment – Buildings -- stations, control offices, etc. – Yards Sachin Budhisagar 04/05/20156Centre for Railway Information Systems

7 Subsequent phases Location of maintenance facilities Movement of trains Level crossings Hospitals and medical facilities Accident relief medical equipment Accident relief trains Civil administration – police stations, district administration, disaster management authority 04/05/20157Centre for Railway Information Systems

8 Interfacing GIS with applications Asset management systems for asset location Train operations management systems for train running position Planning systems to visualize system bottlenecks Project management systems to visualize project progress 04/05/20158Centre for Railway Information Systems

10 Indian Railways Information Architecture 04/05/201510Centre for Railway Information Systems

11 Challenges Base map? – IR’s area coverage is very high – Survey of India maps would need to be updated Scale / resolution versus cost? Collection of data? – A mammoth task Expertise to manage GIS system? – Dedicated team to be established 04/05/201511Centre for Railway Information Systems

12 Approach followed Focus area mapping – Satellite data – Ground surveys Cross functional team from concerned departments – Identification of features – Identification of attributes – Source of data – Building up the database 04/05/201512Centre for Railway Information Systems

13 Architecture Central database Exposing map on the Internet / intranet Using web services to provide interfaces with the different applications System for updation of data and configuration control of the database Access control 04/05/201513Centre for Railway Information Systems
