Default Tool for finding & planning your Travel in Kerala

This application was developed by my previous employer for the Kerala State PWD, and is fairly accurate ,

Kerala PWD - Official web portal

This link is a bit slow like most other Govt Sites but , serves the purpose.

Guys check it out and respond ...

A very good effort.
Helps many who have no idea about Kerala. But it takes a while to get used to it seems.

Thanks for putting up the link here, Hellstar.

Hey this is terrific, though like Zak pointed out you need to know the places to really find you way. Distances are no more an approximation!

If only this could be worked onto a map and loaded into a GPS application.

EDIT: There are huge errors in this application, though. Just discovered one.

If anybody is planning to make a road trip to kerala , ask them to postpone as the roads are in 'excellent' shape.

I just checked the application. Mighty errors and nothing else. Serious flaws are there , whoever developed this should be prosecuted.

It was developed at InApp ! I guess then the application lives up to the disclaimer on the landing page ! , but when i checked with distances from TVM to Cochin and TVM to Thrissur the results were pretty fine anyways ... too bad it doesnt work , but some thing like that would have been really good without the errors.

ha haa...
that makes another point from the PWD. "PWD will not be responsible for the accuracy and correctness of the content available on those websites/web pages"

Overall site is looking good except for the accuracy and it is a good initiative that too by PWD. Data can be corrected over time, hope this does not face a premature death like many other gvt intiatives
