Deputy Director in Charge of Finance and Administration at Ghana Post, Mr. Kwaku Tabi Amponsah, has announced that individuals who do not have access to android phones and other smart phones, will have to use an offline application to register for the Digital Addressing System.
The National Digital Property Address System, which is expected to make it easier for locations to be found across the country and boost emergency service delivery, was launched in Accra few days ago.
The first step is to visit your app store to download the GhanaPostGPS App for free, from Google Play Store for Android users and Apple store for IOS users.
Once the app is installed, follow the instructions to register, verify and confirm your login details. After this process, you are ready to use the GhanaPostGPS app. No payment is required for the download or use of the GhanaPostGPS app.
Some individuals who do not have access to an android device have complained that, they may not be able to access the app but Mr. Amponsah speaking on Rainbow Radio said, the app developers developed an offline application so individuals who do not have access to internet will easily register.
Individuals who may want to use the offline application will have to visit any Ghana Post offline closer to them and register effective, next week.
He also hinted that Ghana Post together with the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) will roll out a campaign aimed at educating Ghanaians on how the Digital Address System works.
The GhanaPostGPS, is a global addressing system which divides Ghana into grids of 5m x 5m squares and assigns each one a unique address, known as a digital address. With this system, every land and property gets a permanent address. The system is location-based and it is expected to provide an effective means of providing an address to every location and place in the country, including undeveloped parcels of land, using an information technology application (app). The app will generate a unique code for every property or location in Ghana with the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. A national address registry will be imbedded in the system to enable individuals to validate their home and business addresses for easy direction and identification.
