Ghurbil came up with the concept when he moved to Lebanon. He noticed that Lebanese people do not use formal addresses to indicate a place; instead, they use landmarks or famous stores.

The maps were created with the help of the municipalities and local people. Their design is attractive and aim at making the experience of walking in Beirut easier and more pleasant.
