The Election e-ATLAS is one of the unique initiatives under North Eastern Spatial Data Repository (NeSDR/NEDRP) programme of NESAC to empower the electoral process in the State of Mizoram. The programme was jointly executed with Mizoram State Remote Sensing Applications Centre (MIRSAC). The Election e-ATLAS is expected to provide actionable inputs during pre-election preparation. Live visualization of polling updates and turnout spatially from the control room on the day of election is the vital component of system. It also can generate the live heat map polls based on the live feed of polling updates from the various polling stations. It may be noted that the Election e-Atlas was successfully used during the last Meghalaya Assembly Election 2018 held on February 27, 2018.
