Placename and data references

The sources used for preparing the places / villages database for India has been wide ranging. Though field surveys have been conducted for data acquisition, the location information for many places for the current content has been derived by our volunteers from AMS-U502 series of maps and public reference sources. The placenames have been correlated with the census of India 2000 publication of list of villages and towns. However, nowhere in the process there is any direct copy of content from any source. PIN codes for India have been obtained from the Indian Postal service publications, but here too, due to lot of inconsistencies and contradictions in published data, modifications have been done in lot of places to improve the quality of information.
