Hi Thej, Datameet After reading this, I went to SOI site and tried downloading few maps. I could only find PDFs. And data.gov.in also love PDFs.
I wrote a couple of scripts which I used to figure out boundaries and extract data from curves in old PDF paper. It's a tricky business but I had decent success (One python3 app is here https://github.com/dilawar/PlotDigitizer). These scripts can also be tweaked to fetch boundaries from PDF maps (no deep-learning business yet). If datameet still struggling to find the boundaries from such maps, please send a few samples to me. I can probably setup a web-service to upload the map and get the GeoJSON if results are OK. best, Dilawar On Tue, Jun 16, 2020 at 8:49 AM Naveen Francis <navee...@gmail.com> wrote: > Nice writeup Thej, > > SOI point of view is completely different > https://youtu.be/o1qMZZOia3c?t=3174 > > 'Don't take data, but starting using SOI services.' > > > On Monday, 15 June 2020 11:11:43 UTC+5:30, Thejesh GN wrote: >> >> Team, >> >> I wrote a piece for EPW about the status of Open Data and How communities >> like ours.
