Like Aadhaar is the identity of a person, eLoc is the identity of a place or business”!

NEW DELHI: The typical postal address is a few lines long. Now, you can shrink it into just six characters — no matter how long and complicated it is — and share with anyone who can find the building, business or even your home that it represents with almost pinpoint accuracy.

More than eight years after it started working on it, digital mapping company MapmyIndia formally launched eLoc (short for e-Location) on Thursday. For now, it is a free service.
It shortens an address into a combination of six alphabets and numbers. You can put it on your visiting card, on a website or share via any other means. If someone is looking to reach you, the person needs to just enter the eLoc in MapmyIndia’s maps portal (or app) and it will instantly offer turn-by-turn directions right up to your address.

Shrink Your Postal Address

Shrink Your Postal Address

The closest to eLoc, in a context that everyone can understand, is our PIN code. The problem with the PIN code is that it specifies an area that could as large as 50 square kilometres. An eLoc, on the other hand, can guide the user right up to the address.

If you’re reading this, chances are that the eLoc for your address has already been created. You can head over to www.mapmyindia. com/eloc and check. Once you have your eLoc (ABC123 for example), you can also share a short URL to it, which will be //eloc.me/ABC123. Clicking the link will open MapmyIndia’s maps in a web browser and show you the precise location. If you don’t have an eLoc, you can right click on the map and create one.

Apart from consumer use, businesses and government services, too, could benefit from eLoc. Taxi aggregators, emergency services, local deliveries, courier services, property administration, postal services and others can all use it.

“Just like Aadhaar is the identity of a person, eLoc is the identity of an address or a business,” said Rakesh Verma, managing director of MapmyIndia. “Over 2 crore (20 million) eLocs have been generated already and, apart from the address, it can also include more information about a business.”

When asked about monetising the eLoc, he said: “Initially, we want to do whatever it takes to get the maximum number of people to start using it. At some point, business will start benefiting from eLocs and that’s when we will look at monetising. We want to take the total 20 million eLocs to about 100 million – as we keep building house addresses, the eLoc database will be built alongside”.

MapmyIndia releases eLoc,India’s first Nation-wide Digital Address System

● Simple, precise and ready-to-use for free eLoc,is a unique, 6 character code for any address across India, removing complexity and hassles of providing multi-line, often misspelled addresses and searching and navigating to the doorstep of addresses in areas with confusing and conflicting address naming and ordering systems.

● Makes individual commuter and travelers’ lives much easier through quick and precise navigation to a destination, enhances field delivery/visit capabilities and profitability of businesses across ecommerce, transportation, and field operation and logistics-heavy sectors, and brings productivity and transparency to government services, delivery and taxation at a property level
● 20+ years, 200+ crore rupees private investment by MapmyIndia into advanced mapping technology, extensive field data survey, and private-private and public-private ecosystem building around advanced location solutions to help India leapfrog to first place in a digital world

New Delhi, February 9, 2017: MapmyIndia, India’s leader in premium-quality digital maps, GPS navigation, GPS tracking, location-based apps and GIS solutions, today announced the release of MapmyIndia eLoc, India’s first Nation-wide Digital Address. This powerful innovation, packaged as a simple and easy-to-use digital address, will transform historical addresses and disrupt traditional mapping and navigation services, bringing immense convenience to individuals and significant benefits to businesses and governments across India.

eLoc will help Indian travelers and commuters search, share and navigate to destinations’ exact doorstep far more easily and quickly. It will also reduce time, money, fuel wastage and expenses for businesses in the ecommerce, transportation, logistics and field operations domains. Finally, governance at all levels, across urban and rural levels, will be empowered with much more productivity and transparency when it comes to civic amenities delivery such as electricity, water, gas as well as property tax administration and tax evasion detection.

What is eLoc?

eLoc by MapmyIndia is simply put, the Aadhaar of addresses. eLoc of any place, be it a building/flat/office/business/city/village/locality/road and so on, is a short, 6 character code (for e.g. 8GDTYX, or MMI000), which is easy to remember, share, type and provide.Behind the convenience and simplicity of eLoclies the huge power of India’s most comprehensive, accurate and precise door-step level, 3D, digital map database and turn-by-turn navigation solution built by MapmyIndia. Hence, the power of eLoc is such that when a person, business or official searches for a place by entering its eLoc, they can see the precise map location of that place, get turn-by-turn directions to the exact entrance doorstep of that place, and also see information about that place besides its location, such as reviews, photos and other information provided by the place’s owner, businesses and governments. More information on what is an eLoc, how it works, and how one can access, use and share a place’s eloc is available at http://www.mapmyindia.com/eloc

MapmyIndia has privately invested over 200 crores over the last 20+ years in advanced mapping technologies and professional field surveys to create India’s most comprehensive digital address database, as a result of which over 2 crore and counting eLocs, across all 7000+ urban towns and 6+ lakh villages in rural India, are already readily available for individual, business and government users to use instantly, for free. This nulls the need for significant future investment by public and private entities in creation of a digital map and address database. For new places that come up, or those that change or shut, or those missing in MapmyIndia’s database, users can add them by visiting http://maps.mapmyindia.com on their browser or by using the MapmyIndia mobile app across Android, iOS and Windows platforms, and MapmyIndia will continue to professionally verify and validate those contributions.

“MapmyIndia’s mission from the start has been to make the world better through maps and location technologies. We believe eLoc is a game changing milestone in India’s history, and like mobile phones helped India leapfrog other countries, eLoc will leapfrog India to the forefront of mapping and navigation convenience and capabilities compared to the rest of the world. Seeing the government’s commitment to the ‘Digital India’ initiative, I believe the time is ripe for India to move towards a digital address system. We see eLoc as the most simple, precise and powerful way of locating addresses, navigating to them and sharing information about addresses/places/buildings/flats etc. Through our own investment and decision to make this publicly available, we hope to encourage the public and private ecosystem to leverage this ready-to-use, priceless asset and build transformative experiences and businesses for Indians and India by using MapmyIndia eLoc. There is no need to commission surveys and reinvent the proverbial wheel. The information already exists with MapmyIndia and can be customized according to the needs of the individual customers. This not just saves costs but also speeds-up the delivery. I am confident that MapmyIndia eLoc is a powerful idea whose time has come, and which will benefit hundreds of millions of Indians, millions of Indian businesses and thousands of government departments at all levels across India. MapmyIndia has already partnered with the Indian Space Research Organisation and its national satellite imagery service called Bhuvan, and the indigenous positioning system called Navic, to combine all these ingredients with MapmyIndia’s own mapping and navigation technologies to offer the best solution for India, most suitable for India, and a solution which we are proud to say is both the best for, and also made in India.” says Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia.
