Geo Information and Modelling Solutions Private Limited (GIMS) on Thursday launched its software solution ‘Geo Reference Model’ (GRM).

GRM uses latitude and longitude reference points of a location and Google’s satellite imagery to create three-dimensional digital replicas, GIMS CEO T.N. Guruprasad told reporters.

It can also be used as a planning tool to develop infrastructural projects. One can clearly see how a structure would look once it is constructed and make amendments wherever necessary, Director, GIMS Hyderabad Centre, Naresh Chandra said.

“GRM and Google Earth platform can be used in town planning, infrastructural development and to map critical assets like lakes and river beds quickly and at a fraction of the cost incurred currently,” he said. GRM can be learnt easily and can be used as a career option, Mr. Chandra said.

GIMS has already completed over 250 projects in India and abroad and will develop models of historical monuments and public utility buildings for free, he said.
