Ulaanbaatar, June 20, 2024 /MONTSAME/. The Ministry of Road and Transport Development of Mongolia in collaboration with the I-Tech Company is working to integrate geographic information and operational hours for passenger transport stations, restaurants, auto repair centers, pharmacies, and other service facilities along highways in Mongolia into the Google Map system.


In the initial phase, the plan includes capturing 360-degree images of international and national highways and the service facilities in the western region or along the Ulaanbaatar-Arvaikheer-Bayankhongor-Altai-Khovd-Bayan-Ulgii-Ulaangom-Uliastai-Tosontsengel-Tsetserleg-Kharkhorin-Bulgan-Orkhon-Darkhan-Ulaanbaatar route using a specially equipped vehicle and uploading them to the Google Map system. This will also encompass the international AN4 highway from Bulgan border crossing to Tsagaannuur border crossing. Additionally, the project will incorporate images and information about nearby soums, settlements, tourist destinations, natural scenic spots, and historical landmarks.


The Ministry of Road and Transport Development of Mongolia has announced that this initiative will eventually cover all national and international highways in Mongolia, with the goal of promoting tourism under the Government’s "Go Mongolia" Campaign.
