Navigating Georgia’s capital city of Tbilisi will soon become easier for locals as well as guests of the city as the National Navigation System Project is coming to an end.
The National Agency of Public Registry (NAPR) has already completed its field work to chart and photograph all major locations in Tbilisi. The result of this work will soon be available on an online map.
This is part of an NAPR project to develop a national navigation system. The project aims to create a national database for Georgia and integrate it in the leading navigation systems worldwide, such as Google and TomTom.
The prepared database includes over 41,000 objects such as education, health and non-governmental organisations, culture, sport, leisure and entertainment facilities, banks and ATMs, tourism and service centres.
The project also described all large and small roads of Tbilisi with accompanying traffic sign and other information.
Once such works are completed in all parts of Georgia, a web-based national navigation system will be created for the country and mobile applications will also be available.
So far besides Tbilisi the navigation system has already been completed across the Black Sea coastline, in Georgia’s Shida Kartli and Kvemo Kartli areas and also in areas of major international importance and secondary roads of the country.
Georgia is the first South Caucasian country to cooperate with global leading navigation systems and integrate its database with them.
