The “Hong Kong Guide” photomap edition 2022 produced by the Lands Department (LandsD) goes on sale today (January 25), while the electronic “e-HongKongGuide” is available for free downloading.
This year’s “Hong Kong Guide” features a series of orthophotos produced from aerial photographs taken in 2020 and 2021. Every single map page is preceded by its corresponding orthophotos and labelled with major places, streets and trails, thus enabling readers to have a good and quick grasp of Hong Kong’s geographic environment and the relevant spatial information.
In addition to photomaps, the new 552-page “Hong Kong Guide” provides detailed maps of Hong Kong, gazetteers of street and place names, indexes of estates and buildings, public services, as well as information on public transportation.
The “e-HongKongGuide”, a collection of maps in GeoPDF format, can be read by desktop computers and applications on mobile devices in offline mode. Users can easily locate their positions on the “e-HongKongGuide” maps using free mapping applications with satellite positioning functions.
