One major infrastructure backbone that Svamitva, the government’s property card scheme for rural India, is creating are the Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS), a network of GPS-enabled stations to get the coordinates for accurate map making.

Just like mobile towers in remote and not-so-remote locations, these stations will help develop a grid based on which maps can be quickly drawn to the lowest of scale with very little effort and cost.
