aTHAILANDmap is developed by a Bangkok-based team comprising illustrators, cartographers, programmers, designers, and travel wizs. Initiated in 1998 by a Thai architect, Sungkhakorn Boonchuan, as his hobby, the project was later taken seriously. Staff members, one by one, joined the team doing data acquisition, illustration, and copy writing. After two years, the beta edition in JPEG+HTML was completed, tested and revised. Edition 1 was marketed in November 2000. Edition 2 has just been launched in December 2001 with continual development.
