Geospatial data in Georgia is now easily and widely accessible thanks to a new multifunctional interactive map released by the National Agency of Public Registry (NAPR) under the Ministry of Justice.
Available at https://maps.gov.ge, it provides geospatial information produced by NAPR and other authorities and is compatible with tablet and mobile devices.
The map was developed in-house by NAPR’s IT team in close cooperation with the Geodesy and Geoinformation Department. The initial source was maps.napr.gov.ge, which was developed 15 years ago by NAPR, with the current portal – www.maps.gov.ge – having been significantly improved over time in terms of speed, functionality, and content.
Development of the mobile application of the maps started in December 2021 with the support of the Norwegian project ‘Maps for Sustainable Development in Georgia’. Refinement and enrichment of the data is ongoing with the aim of providing truly national coverage and making as much geospatial information of Georgia as possible widely available for everyone.
Currently, the map includes cadastral data, addresses, orthophotos and other core geospatial data. The next step will see the digital base maps developed within the Norwegian Project Maps for Sustainable Development in Georgia.
Currently, data is provided in Georgian, however in the near future, the map will be also fully available in English.
