Building confidence and security in the use of ICTs

In Algeria, the Centre for the Development of Advanced Technologies has developed the Topographic Geographic Information System for ICT Networks, a web-based topologic geographic information system for monitoring ICT networks (access, transport and distribution) for national ICT operator Algérie Télécom (SDGs 8, 9, 11, 16, and 17). The Digital mapping platform on the Internet is a platform that will enable the citizens of various countries to find points of interest (schools, universities, municipalities, hospitals, museums, hotels, etc.). It will explore different cities, regions and sites, and allows each country to create road network and communication channels.
