E-map features historical and cultural sites of Zhetisu
Today everyone who wants to get acquainted with sights of Zhetisu which is Kazakhstan’s ‘Golden Cradle’ can do it staying home. Everybody can access a map of the historical and cultural heritage of the Almaty region. The map has complete information about the holy places of the region. The users can find not only texts, links and photos, but videos and topographic images.
GALYMZHAN OSPANOV, DIRECTOR, REGIONAL CENTER FOR PROTECTION OF HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE:
Currently, 20-25 people view an electronic card every day. It introduces users to information they are interested in. We also talk about and advertise the electronic map, where you can find a lot of new and useful information.
The developers say that the electronic map was created not only for tourists but it is also useful for students.
SAMAL SAGYMBEKOVA, STUDENT:
- You can find all the necessary facilities on the map. The location and photos of the facilities are indicated on the map. We want to go abroad but we don’t know that our country can offer a lot of interesting things. I think first you need to discover your native land.
The users can also access the electronic map from their mobile application. However, only a part of the facilities are included in the map, information about all the holy places will be given a bit later. There are 2343 facilities in the region. Also, the developers plan to provide services for booking hotels via Internet.
