HYDERABAD: The ICMR-National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) on Friday launched an interactive web application ‘Nutrition Atlas 2.0’ that allows access to nutrition data from various sources.

The application was developed by a team led by Dr Subba Rao M Gavaravarapu, scientist and head of nutrition communication division and was coordinated by Dr Vishnu Vardhana Rao, former director of ICMR-National Institute of Medical Statistics, New Delhi.

When it was first launched in 2017, the web application was at best rudimentary, but has now been developed into state-of-the-art standard web-based dashboard application with an interactive user-interface using advanced technologies.

The application was reviewed by a panel of national-level experts from all the fields of nutrition, public health and medical sciences to ensure that the application meets the needs and expectations of all the potential user groups. In addition, a team of 30 multi-stakeholders had also reviewed the application from the perspective of the potential user groups in a workshop conducted in January 2024.
