Digital map shows location of vaccination points in and around Bangkok


Bangkok residents can now check the location of their nearest Covid-19 vaccination point via a digital map.

GPS mapping firm GlobeTech has developed the NOSTRA Map application (https://map.nostramap.com/NostraMap/...) to pinpoint the location of dozens of jab points at hospitals and other facilities across the capital and surrounding areas.

Utilising Public Health Ministry data, the map also enables to check information such as congestion levels at vaccination points before they travel, so they can avoid queues.

GlobeTech general manager Wichai Saenghiranwattana said the NOSTRA Map is part of efforts to maximise the efficiency of the vaccine rollout, getting as many people vaccinated in the fastest possible time.

Users can check the location of jab points by clicking “data layer” on the left side of the map. The points are shown as red pins in the shape of a syringe. The map includes route details for users.

The NOSTRA Map app also provides the locations of the Covid-19 testing labs and alternative state quarantine (ASQ) accommodation.
