The Rajasthan Government (India) has decided to establish the Rajasthan Urban Information System (RUIS) comprising Rajasthan Urban Planning System (RUPS) and Rajasthan Urban Management System (RUMS).
Under the INR 40 crore project, RUIS will provide mapping and GIS tools for planning, implementation and e-Governance solutions for urban development initiatives in 39 cities and towns in the state. RUIS is part of Rajasthan's State Urban Agenda for Rajasthan (SUARAJ) programme for planned urban development in the state. RUIS is also be part of the Rajasthan Spatial Data Centre (RSDC) that would be hosting both rural and urban information system for Rajasthan. Both RUIS and RUPS will individually have Urban Spatial Information System (RUSIS) that will provide the spatial data while Urban Data Bank Indicators (RUDBI) will provide the data bank and indices. They will be linked together through a Spatial Decision Support system (SDSS) that will provide the state with powerful mapping and GIS tools for good planning, implementation and e-Governance solutions in urban areas. The Government of Rajasthan already has a state-of-art state datacentre offering IT based infrastructure catering to various departments across the state.
