An interactive map TorusMaps has been developed in West Kazakhstan region for increase of tourism potential of the region, Trend reports with reference to the press office of the regional akimat (administrative center).
The map mainly includes the sacred places, some of which are even unknown to the locals.
“This technology was borrowed from Samsung and is being used in a number of gadgets. It provides access to five components, including graphic information, description, multimedia information, virtual tour and the 3D model itself. Some seven region’s sacred places have been digitalized,” Technical Director of TORUS.KZ Dauren Gabdullayev said.
He further stated that the company plans to digitalize the recreational facilities, travel agencies, educational and medical facilities. Currently, two terminals have been developed, one of which was placed in the building of the railway station, while the placement of the second one has not been decided on yet.
Next year, the installation of similar terminals is also planned on the territory of the bus station and in the building of the Uralsk airport.
The terminals are being installed for providing tourists with accurate information on sacred places and touristic objects.
