The Ministry of Culture launches the Geocultura project

The information on over 7000 public and private cultural institutions.

El País, August 04 2008

Geocultura lets users locate and consult the contact details of over 7,000 cultural institutions which depend on the Ministry of Culture, regional and local authorities, as well as private entities.

It provides each institution’s address, telephone number and web site. The institutions include libraries, museums, art galleries, archives, and Spain's 40 world heritage sites.

This new service of the Ministry of Culture is based on Google Maps technology, which is already benefiting other administrations such as the General Directorate of the Cadastre or the Traffic Department.

The project has been developed by Eptisa Tecnologías de la Información, a partner of Google in the introduction of its technology in Europe.
