Dubai Municipality, 21 June 2022:  The Dubai Municipality has updated the base map of the Emirate of Dubai through its GIS Center, along with the inventory of government assets across the Emirate. Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality, gave significant prominence to the initiative during his briefing, where he learned of the major projects and operations of the center for 2022. The initiative focused on the development of a database and dictionary of assets, which would be updated through aerial photographs and internally at the centre, through field surveys for strategic partners' assets. 

The update process is in line with Dubai Municipality's goal to provide partners with services and geospatial maps using the latest technology, in accordance with the best approved international standards and the directives of Dubai's wise leadership. It facilitated the systematic collection and compilation of a geospatial database, which will be updated regularly. The project's outputs further included updated data for Dubai's Digital Surface Model (DSM) and Digital Terrain Model (DTM), along with the updated geospatial data and green areas collected using geospatial artificial intelligence technology. In addition, the GIS Center now owns the first 'PluraView' unit in Dubai, where staff members were trained to take advantage of the technology to construct three-dimensional models from aerial images, based on corrected measurements for quality control and data extraction.

Dawoud Al Hajri said: 'The municipality, through its GIS Center, is keen to provide services and geospatial maps to partners using the most advanced technologies, following internationally accepted standard practices and the wise leadership's directives. We truly recognize the importance of geospatial projects, operations, and initiatives, including the update process of the base map project, as it plays a crucial role in planning and development of the infrastructure in the Emirate.'
The project, which utilizes aerial photography and the 3D PluraView, a three-dimensional stereo device, to cover all of Dubai with an accuracy of 10-15 cms, is considered to be one of the center's most important projects. The municipality's efforts are certain to enhance the Emirate's geospatial projects and improve the asset database across the region.
