The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has partnered with Ahmedabad-based Scanpoint Geomatics Ltd to develop an integrated geographic information system and image processing software (IGiS) to analyse satellite pictures and data.

The low-cost software is an indigenous seamless geomatics application for geographical information system (GIS), image processing and its integration with the real-time information using the global positioning system (GPS).

'It is the first indigenous software which integrates satellite images with information. We have demonstrated our capability to develop IGiS in a niche area for our use, which is the need of the hour,' ISRO chairman G. Madhavan Nair said while launching the software product here.
