Grid

A Grid is a 100mx100m tile that forms the fundamental unit of Data Sutram’s location data bank. All socio-economic data parameters and POIs (Place of Interest) are indexed to the grid, and will depend on the grid for different kinds of analysis. Every grid will be represented by a hashed ID that will represent the center of the grid.

A grid will be mapped onto different levels of administrative boundaries as follows:

  • State
  • District
  • City/Town/Village
  • Locality/Road Address
  • Pincode
