TPL Trakker Ltd, a tracking solutions provider, launched on Monday country’s first indigenously developed digital mapping solution.

With close to a million housing addresses, TPL Maps claims to have approximately 1,000 3D building models and 300,000 kilometers of road network mapped across the country.

According to a statement, TPL Maps has 1.5 million points-of-interest (POIs) – the “highest number of POIs any mapping service in the country has”.

“TPL Maps have been developed indigenously and these localised mapping solutions will provide a holistic navigational experience to people all over Pakistan,” said TPL Maps, Ali Jameel, CEO TPL Trakker Ltd.

Interestingly, TPL has included the entire Kashmir region as part of Pakistan.

When you log on to their website, a popup comes up which reads, “Kashmir is ours! TPL Maps have included entire Kashmir as a part of Pakistan. From Karachi to Kashmir, Baltistan to Balochistan, we have every part of our country mapped accurately.”

The app is available on both Android and iOS.
