Govt introduces geo-tagging facility, green selfie feature in Tiger Force app
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The government has introduced the geo-tagging facility and Tiger Force Application.
Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Youth Affairs Muhammad Usman Dar Sunday said the government had launched an application to track the ongoing plantation drive in the country through geo-tagging technology.
Usman Dar also said the ‘app’ was prepared with the help of Punjab Information Technology board to keep the record of each sapling, being planted under the country’s first-ever digital plantation campaign.
The special assistant said it was the first time in the history that modern technology was being employed to carry out a plantation drive in the country.
“A special feature of geo-tagging had been incorporated in the application, enabling the forest departments’ officers to keep the plantation record.”
He said live location and number of planted saplings could be identified through this special application. The SAPM said the opposition members could also download the application to count the number of planted trees on the ‘tiger force day’.
He said a green selfie feature had also been introduced in the application to enable the volunteers to upload their picture while planting a sapling anywhere in the country.
