The Cultural Heritage Administration said Thursday it will launch a new information service in March that will pinpoint the location of historic sites and give users information on regulations in places where construction is scheduled.
The service is a revamped and expanded version of the existing Cultural Heritage GIS Service (http://gis-heritage.go.kr). GIS stands for geographic information service. The CHA will finish a pilot run of the new service by next month and officially launch it on March 1.
Service users can obtain geographic information from ordinary and satellite maps about major cultural properties designated by the central government, including national treasures, public treasures, and historic sites, and other cultural assets designated by regional governments. They can also find vivid stories, videos and images of cultural properties on the service website.
