April 7, 2018, 4:12 pm

A new service called Street View has been launched by the Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI) for the Kuwait Finder Map Application to allow clear view of the required location’s surroundings, disclosed Director General Mussad Al Assousi in an exclusive interview to The Times, Kuwait.

The new feature will provide over 600,000 of Kuwait Finder’s users with a more thorough visual information on the desired location, covering most areas in Kuwait thereby making it easier for Kuwaitis and residents to find their desired locations.

Since its launch, The Kuwait Finder application has gone through several stages of improvement of searches from locations, to companies and several category searches and the inclusion of a voice navigation system. Due to demand, it was also made a bilingual application. A new feature added is the traffic flow which shows the congestion in areas.

The application has become a popular choice among residents in Kuwait to locate and find places by the PACI number placed outside offices and buildings. The new Street View feature is a further enhancement to the popular application, disclosed Al Assousi.

Regarding traffic flow, Al Assousi said this traffic data will greatly help in the anlaysis of traffic movement in the country and help in identifying new routes to ease traffic flow. The data is updated every three minutes giving commuters advance notice of traffic jams.

He affirmed the keenness of PACI to continuously develop its mechanisms and improve its services in line with the latest technologies, whether in its interaction with the public or in the services it offers whose beneficiaries are in both the public and private sectors.

With regards to the renewal of civil ID cards, he said there had been some complaints about the shortage of the brown envelopes placed in the machines that are located all over Kuwait. To address the problem, PACI launched the e-envelope on their website so that people could apply online and a new service called the white envelope was launched this month.

The white envelope service is available at the PACI headquarters where employees are authorised to submit completed documents for any person that ensures ease of submission of the documents.

The Kuwait Finder app is part of upcoming projects that provide detailed data on Kuwait, as part of H.H. the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s vision 2035 to turn Kuwait into a financial and commercial capital, revealed Al-Asousi.
