LDA develops Android app to carry out survey
Lahore Development Authority has developed an Android application to help carry out surveys for the new commercialization policy. The app will be used to carry out surveys of high-rise buildings, the data from which will be used to create the new policy for the mega-city.
While talking about uses of the application, LDA Director General Amna Imran Khan said that this Android application will help the survey teams to carry out a real-time survey of high-rise commercial buildings. The collected data will help judge the actual impact of these buildings on the infrastructure of the city and thus provide a realistic assessment of problems faced by the people.
LDA is also planning to update the master plan of Lahore over the next few months. It is also planning to take in feedback from the public. According to Amna, as the master plan is being made for people, taking input from the public is very important.
“We have adopted an informal method for collecting opinion of the people and involving them in the formulation of policies and plan which directly affect their lives.”
