New Delhi based MapmyIndia has announced the launch of maps and nearby search features as a part of its mobile application and official website, to help Indians find Coronavirus vaccination centres across the country.
The Government of India has also integrated these features into cowin.gov.in, their official Corona vaccination registration portal to guide the people and connect them to their nearby vaccination centres.
“To make the critical vaccination effort seamless, MapmyIndia has put all the vaccination centres across India on MapmyIndia’s maps. Users can use the MapmyIndia App (mapmyindia.com/move) and maps portal (maps.mapmyindia.com) to search and find nearby vaccine centres and get directions to them. They can also write reviews and report issues they face there - to help authorities get feedback and take corrective action, where required,” says Rohan Verma, CEO & Executive Director, MapmyIndia.
MapmyIndia’s App, powered by MapmyIndia Maps and APIs, was the winner of AatmaNirbhar App Challenge organised by Govt of India six months ago. MapmyIndia’s app offers far more detailed and accurate maps, is privacy-centric, fully indigenous, more localised and respectful of Indian nuances, and is an AatmaNirbhar alternative to foreign map apps that come default in operating systems. MapmyIndia’s app can be downloaded from mapmyindia.com/move.
All website and app developers can participate and further an AatmaNirbhar Bharat by integrating the best Indian maps using MapmyIndia APIs (mapmyindia.com/api) so that all end users see localised maps instead of foreign ones.
