Mapping of plantation under Green BRTS
An initiative to map the plantations under Green BRTS was started in June 2016 by Directorate of Urban Land Transport
and Hubli Dharwad BRTS Company Ltd
. This mapping technique supports an online public platform for knowing the status of the plantations.
This will also help in analysing growth, survival rate etc. of plantations at different phases. And also for effective selection of location, species, maintenance schedule etc. for further plans.
