Infrastructure, Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS) implemented their Environmental & Social Policy Framework. For one of their projects, the Ahmedabad Mehsana project, under the ESPF, they were required to collate environmental and social information including safety records on a routine basis. Since road networks are a spatial element, it became necessary to capture information on spatial basis. This involved capturing information from different sections of the road, traffic movement, air quality, noise levels, accidents, causes of accidents and so on.

Since integration was needed for better management, EMC set up a web based GIS platform to incorporate the project information elements with the environment elements. This allowed for interpretation and generation of reports on a regular basis. This project was first of its kind and we were requested to present the same at a conference on use of web technology and GIS. This kind of system is now being used by the whole country.
