Mapping Brick Fields for Goal India

CKS has got another partnership contract to map 100 brick fields for Goal India. All these brick fields have been chosen by Goal India for promotion of water, health and sanitation indicators among those who work as laborers in them. CKS has been asked to map the brick fields on Google Maps so that these places along with all data available including development indicators may be tracked, and appropriate embeddable links may be generated for web deployment as well.

The task started on 1 June 2012 is expected to be completed by 15 July. The field level collection of data is underway, and would be completed before the end of this month so enable mapping and link generation.

We thank all the staff of Goal India and their partners for their valuable support. Our special thanks go to Mr. John W., Mr. Sujay C, and Ms. Wendy H., of Goal India office at Kolkata for their guidance and suggestions that have helped to frame this mapping exercise as a model.
