  • To ensure universal access to schools including secondary schools within a reasonable distance of any habitation, the Geographic coordinates of school along with the school information available in UDISE is being uploaded on the school GIS Web enabled platform i.e. http://schoolgis.nic.in.
  • All states have conducted GIS mapping and shared geographical coordinates of schools with the NIC except the State of Jammu and Kashmir. This mapping has been linked to the UDISE data base to ensure that every school is mapped and is backed by a detailed school report card based on UDISE information. This effort of developing web enabled platform about school information (Spatial and Non Spatial data) will add to the quality of planning and better utilization of resources available under SSA and RMSA.
  • GIS mapping of 11,29,250 schools (73.41%) across the country has been completed so far.
