GhanaPostGPS is Ghana’s official digital property addressing system which ensures that all locations in the country are addressed. With GhanaPostGPS, every location has a unique digital address.
The digital address is a composite of the postcode (region, district & area code) plus a unique address. GhanaPostGPS translates your GPS location to a user-friendly digital address.
With GhanaPostGPS, users can now precisely pinpoint any location in Ghana using the digital address of the place.
GhanaPostGPS is integrated with Google maps to allow for easy navigation of a particular area, detailing major road networks and other landmarks.
However, if you want quick and convenient navigation, you want to dodge traffic or just trying to avoid the police on the road, I recommend to you the Waze App, which you can download for free here: https://www.browsercam.com/waze-pc/

Digital Addressing is a modern and revolutionary approach to allocating addresses within a defined space with the aid of the latest geocoding technology available. This type of addressing is very robust as it stands the test of time irrespective of changes in borders and environments.
