(VEN) - The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) recently held a launching ceremony of the first digital Map4D map platform developed in Vietnam. This is the first and only digital map in Vietnam displaying 4D maps, which allows real time visualization of and interaction with 3D objects.

The application launch was among a series of activities introducing “Make in Vietnam” digital platforms as part of the National Digital Transformation Program by 2025, with a vision towards 2030. The creation of digital maps will contribute to accelerating the digital transformation and digitization of smart urban infrastructure in Vietnam.

Map4D was developed by IOTLink Co. and has won second place in MIC’s Viet Solutions 2020 Award.

Do Quang Vinh, general director of IOTLink, said that Map4D provides optimal displays of geographic information systems (GIS) and land information systems. It also includes transport, tourism, agriculture, security and defense, telecommunications, and construction sites. The company’s vision is to construct a smart city software package including many integrated applications for state management, business management, and individuals.

Map4D integrates advanced technologies, is easy to use and offers competitive pricing. A promotional program is on offer for the first 100 businesses to buy the application.

Map4D can be used in e-commerce, tourism, construction, transport, agriculture, environmental protection and natural resources, urban area development, and other areas.

IOTLink has formed cooperation with major Vietnam corporations, such as Viettel and VNPost, the logistics business of Ahamove, the Center for Applied GIS of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMGIS), and Quang Trung Software City (QTSC).

“Over the past eight years, the development team has overcome many difficulties to develop the optimal 4D digital map platform for Vietnamese people. The new challenge at the moment is how to best use it to effectively serve the digital transformation processes of the government, businesses, and the community,” said Do Quang Vinh.

Nguyen Trong Duong, Deputy Head of the Authority of Information Technology Application, said Decision 749/QD-TTg dated June 3, 2020 approved by the Prime Minister assigned the MIC to lead the National Digital Transformation Program. The program targets rapid and efficient transformation in such areas as health, education, tourism, agriculture, industry, and energy.

To realize its mission, the MIC has carried out a series of programs, with the first being the “Make in Vietnam” program, developing digital platforms mastered by Vietnamese engineers. “The launch of Map4D is a clear example of the creative capability of Vietnamese digital technology businesses in general and of IOTLink in particular,” Duong emphasized.
