Digital mapping of the coast of Kerala will be completed by the end of this year, announced Kerala Port Department.

The project aims to create maps with multiple layers, including terrain features, depth of coastal waters and photos of landmarks in the vicinity of the 580 kilometre long coastline.

Many government agencies have indicated interest in the maps and will be used to improve navigation, security and operation. They include Kerala Coastal Police, Kerala State Disaster Management Authority, Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment, Kerala State Coastal Area Development Corporation and Centre for Earth Science Studies, an official told the local media.

The Hydrographic Survey Wing of the Kerala Port Department started the project three years ago because the maps can help it better manage land disputes and preservation of mangrove forests.
