Mahendrakumar Gowda (b June 10, 1976) of Bengaluru, Karnataka, a consultant in land survey, and his 15-member team used Total Station (a survey instrument) to draw the biggest India map outline on two acres at the Balagangadhara Ground on Jan 26, 2015. It took 18 hr to draw the 384× 345 ft map. The Geometric Technology team filled the three colours of the Indian flag – saffron, white and green. The map also included state boundaries. They first created a digital image of the map at the same spot before making the physical replica. A drone camera was used to capture each stage of the work.
