AAC COMPLETED WORK FOR THE NATIONAL AGENCY OF PUBLIC REGISTRY OF GEORGIA
On June 11, 2018, a one-day conference was held in Tbilisi, Georgia (http://napr.gov.ge/p/1730), dedicated to the completion of the first stage of the project "Maps for Sustainable Land Management: Orthophoto Plans of Georgia," financed by the Government of Norway through the Norwegian Mapping Authority (https://kartverket.no/en/).
As a result of the project implementation, AAC conducted aerial photography of the territory of Georgia with a pixel resolution of 20 cm covering an area of over 44 000 square kilometers, and aviation LiDAR scanning with a point density of 2 points per square meter covering an area of over 1 100 square kilometers.
Based on the materials from the aerial survey of Georgia, digital orthophoto plans (covering over 60% of the country's territory) and a digital terrain model were produced.
The delivered orthophotoplans were made accessible in the public geoportal of the National Agency of Public Registry under the Ministry of Justice of Georgia (http://maps.napr.gov.ge).
The orthophoto plans created within this project can be utilized in various fields, including land cadastre, construction works, and vector mapping.
The Government of Norway, the Norwegian Mapping Authority, and the National Agency of Public Registry of Georgia will continue their cooperation during the implementation of the next phase of the project – Creating digital linear maps for a part of Georgia's territory, for which the Government of Norway has already allocated a grant with a budget of €2.5 million..
