Dear All:

Please see the latest demo of the Mumbai Free Map on 

This now contains detailed vector layers for roads, railways, buildings 
and plots, projected onto a satellite composite image of the city. The 
data has been sourced from existing municipal development plans, 
surveys, and maps, which we have scanned, traced and stitched together 
with our archive of project materials at CRIT.

This project has been developed using completely free and open source 
software (Map Server, GRASS, QGIS) and copyleft and public geographic 

The project web page is on http://www.crit.org.in/projects/gis and we 
welcome comments and feedback on it as we begin developing an interface 
by which to annotate the maps and develop the Mumbai Free Map as an 
open source and interactive city archive and community information
