Mapping India’s GDP

IDFC Institute has developed a new web-tool that allows users to assess the spatial distribution of India’s GDP. This 3D tool is based on 2006 GDP and population data* (more recent data will be added soon) and can be used to understand the variation in economic activity across the country at a higher resolution than administrative data, and at a granular level. Users can search for specific cities to view economic output at a 1 sq. km cell level as well as population.
