How can I create maps

Post by krishnaa » Tue Sep 30, 2014 11:15 pm

Recently we have done a survey about un-electrified slums in Vijayawada and collected Longitude, Latitude of each and every un-electrified slum.

This data was put in Excel File and could upload in Google Maps Engine.

But tried to do in Bhuvan Mapper but could not do it as Longitude and Latitude details could not be fed at all. Even here this could not be attached as I am getting a message like "The extension xls is not allowed"

Please help as this is a very important survey and we need to present to Prime Minister of India about How to map Jan Dhan Yojana too.

Best Regards,
