In general, when we started this work, we studied the world experience", the Deputy Minister of Education and Science of Kazakhstan said.

"In our intellectual scientific map "The People of Kazakhstan" we show the ethnic history of the people of the country, the custom, rituals, the processes of resettlement, the deportation of peoples, the settlement of the tribes that formed the Kazakh people. The project is based on modern Web-GIS technologies", the Deputy Minister said.

The map consists of five blocks.
