Click on the image above to see a web map showing the census wards of Mumbai (western suburbs). Currently under the BINUCOM program at KRVIA, open spaces are being studied with respect to the densities across the city. This would help in understanding the disparity levels.

Click on the image above to see a web map showing old streams in the K West ward of Mumbai (part of western suburbs). The streams are traced from a 1924 map of Mumbai and placed on the base layer of Open Street Map. You can see instructions on 'how to use the map' after you click on the image above. This can be useful in understanding the natural drainage pattern that existed before urbanization started post 1950 in this area. A lot of these areas experience flooding during days of heavy monsoon and high tide.

Click on the image above to see a web map showing the catchment areas of Dahisar River. This river, flowing in the east-west direction originates from the hills of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, a protected forest located in the north of Mumbai's suburbs. This river also flooded extensively during the catastrophic floods of 2006. A lot of that can be attributed to the way in which its course has been altered. The layer of catchment areas can be made transparent so that the OSM layer can be seen clearly.

The tiles are georeferenced maps, which can be opened in any GIS software, such as QGIS. The tiles are originally downloaded from the MCGM website. They were then stitched and geo-referenced. Given below is the list of geo-referenced tiles which can be downloaded:-
