Design Printing Services (DPS) Company Limited – – incorporated in 1995 – published its landmark Map of Yangon a.k.a “Street Directory of Yangon” in 1996. At that time, the government is the only organization which prepares and maintains those maps.
Normally they do it by hand and very difficult to update. Moreover maps from the government are not readily available. D.P.S started digitizing the map of Yangon (Rangoon) from British era maps. Then it acquired Intergraph’s Geomedia software along with IRS Panchromatic satellite imagery from Intergraph. The satellite scenes are geocoded using Trimble’s Pro XR gps and then digitized by D.P.S. D.P.S also developed Yangon GIS data warehouse complete with streets, schools, clinics, government offices, water and river, and last but not least – a Business Database. Our strong point is thus in creating and updating GIS database – digitization and data entry, GPS survey and map publishing. We have also developed Vehicle Tracking System using GPS and Compatible maps to manage transport fleets.
