Tbilisi completely added to Google Maps by 2015
Thursday, October 16The world will be able to see a major part of Georgia’s capital Tbilisi on Google Maps – a mapping service offering satellite imagery, street maps and street view perspectives of the city.
Eight districts of Tbilisi have been already added to Google Maps, while the whole city is expected to be uploaded by 2015.
The process of adding Tbilisi to the mapping section of the world’s largest search engine was initiated and organized by Georgia’s National Agency of Public Registry. The agency believed the novelty would help tourists navigate around the city as well as offer support to local residents.
Negotiations between the National Agency and Google lasted for two years before the agency it became a regional administrator of Google Maps. (Agenda.ge)
