Central Asia: Digital cartography

Central Asian countries exchanged their experience in the creation of spatial data infrastructure in a seminar in South Korea. The countries discussed about cartography development in their states and studied the advanced South Korean experience in creating geographic maps. Kazakhstan was represented by ‘Zerde’ National Infocommunication Holding.

In 2014, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Belarus, Mongolia and South Korea supported the initiative to create Eurasian spatial data infrastructure.


- We want to create online public maps where the users can see which lands are free and occupied. They can also search information on communications, master plans and the city’s detailed plan. The issue at hand is cost because we have very large territories and all this have to be photographed and digitized. We are looking for options with minimum cost and maximum result.
