Ahead of the International Yoga Day, Esri India has announced the availability of an app to help yoga enthusiasts locate a Yoga Centre and join the International Yoga Day celebrations on 21st June. This app – Yogamplify is available through web and mobile phones.
Using Yogamplify app, Yoga event organizers can list their International Yoga Day events and provide details like location, timing, chief guest and capacity. This information will be placed on an interactive map. Yoga enthusiasts can view the yoga events organized near their locations on the map and find the best way to reach there. Yoga practitioners as well as enthusiasts can also share the events details with their contacts through social media directly from the app to promote the event and inspire more people to be a part of Yoga day celebrations. This app makes use of Esri’s Cloud known as ArcGIS Online.
Commenting on the initiative, Agendra Kumar, President, Esri India, said, “Esri India supports government’s vision for promoting Yoga around the globe. Yoga day is a global event that promotes yoga for healthy living. Yogamplify is our contribution to support this vision through an innovative application that demonstrates the simplicity and accessibility of the GIS technology.”
