NATMO, a prestigious organisation towards nation building is witness of glorious past, prestigious present and promising future. But it is not exceptional without having its own struggles. There are some problem areas and challenges for this organisation too. To take off for a completely new direction new dimensions has been explored with new initiatives. Motivating own people, understanding of the surrounding scenario and moving to a promising direction with the guidance of our fosterers surely make the future path easy for NATMO. With Innovation, implementation and improvisation, NATMO always try to make its path on the direction to cater the people of different stratum of our society. On various occasion NATMO has worked together with different agencies, with the supervision of experts from various fields to define its role in nation building.

On this special occasion, it’s my privilege to bring our past present and future together to a common platform to realize, visualize and materialize the mission and vision of the pioneer mapping Organization. NATMO has been creating awareness about the multi dimensional socio-economic sectors which help in planning and development of the nation. NATMO has the largest repository of spatial and non-spatial data processed with great accuracy. With changing times, NATMO also keeps pace with the latest technologies like GIS, GPS and remote sensing.

NATMO started its journey way back in 1956 under the able leadership of Prof Shiba Prasad Chattopadhyay with the preparation of the first ever National Atlas of India (Bharat Rashtriya Atlas) in Hindi, which still remains one of the most coveted publications. NATMO has already published more than hundred atlases, more than five hundred thematic maps and nearly two hundred monographs.
