CHENNAI: Information on basic civic amenities available in the city will be at the fingertips soon for Chennaiites. A digital map of the city in the form of a mobile application will be a one-stop resource for the common man to find out the status of civic activities like garbage disposal, vaccinations camps, desiltation work on waterways etc .

The Greater Chennai Corporation during its budget session on Friday announced that it would be mapping several of the city’s resources through this app - canals, waterways, streets, and garbage disposal vehicles, along with some of its services, via a digitised map. It will be a people-friendly app and will make the GCC work transparent.

This map, which can be accessed by the general public, will throw live updates on the status of their civic infrastructure like streetlights, garbage disposal, status of desilting waterways etc.

Some of the core utilities that the digital mapping facility promises at the outset, according to Mayor Saidai Duraisamy are  traffic mapping, asset management and public infrastructure monitoring.
