All address information for online tracking and reports is taken from Gurtam Maps. The formats of the map files for Gurtam Maps are specific vector graphics files that contain a map of a specific area. This format is not editable and is intended for use in the map server of Gurtam Maps.

Gurtam Maps are created from vector maps in different formats such as MP, MapInfo, ESRI Shape, OSM (OpenStreetMap). Note that a source map must be in WGS-84 coordinate projection in grades.

Vector maps in the closed Gurtam Maps format allow ADF-based programs to render map images, search for named elements, use geocoding, including reverse geocoding.

Limited access is possible with the maps. It means that the detailed map of some town or region can be available only to users with certain billing plan. To add such maps, forward a request to
