IDAP is planning huge investments so as to generate a much larger and stronger economic momentum. The assumed availability of power at competitive tariffs can help in positioning Punjab as a competitive destination for industries while providing a good quality of life for its citizens. This will lead the revival and development of rural industries and build economies there by reducing migration of citizens from rural to urban areas for employment.
Developing countries face unique challenges with the design, construction and operations of new infrastructures. Nations with established infrastructure have followed traditional technology models for such services. However, with the use of Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, development of new infrastructure shall follow contemporary technology models eliminating data redundancy, mitigating cost and assesses environmental impacts.

GIS is a complete system that visualizes, questions, analyzes, and interprets the spatial data to understand the relationships, patterns, and trends between the real world objects. It is an essential tool that allows us to understand the existing structure and enables us to envision or propose a more viable alternative. It deals with various engineering, planning, management, transportation, designing, infrastructure and quality control applications and facilitates the management in the decision making processes. One of the major functions of GIS is the development of intelligent digital maps that are a proven technique of communicating geographic knowledge.

IDAP is using GIS in its planning and design section to provide increased efficiency in the execution of services. Infrastructure Management is getting more efficient with the use of GIS as the visualization of assets and its surrounding environment while building, upgrading and repairing the infrastructure helps us to decide how to prioritize the work, convince others of its importance with the facilitation of better decision making about how to move forward with innovative plans.
