Dubai: The Dubai Municipality has introduced a Geo-Address System for locating desirable places, buildings, streets or localities in Dubai. “No more waiting or confusion to identify any place, building, street or locality in Dubai if you use the new Geo Address System developed by Dubai Municipality”s Geographical Information Systems Department” said Abdul Hakim Malik, Director of GIS Department. “Geo-Address System, is a strategic project that aims at creating a national coordinate grid and system to enable everyone to find and reach any location in Dubai easily using a globally integrated code via smart phones, iPads, computers and navigators.

“The department has so far numbered 130,000 entities in Dubai, hopefully the system will be fully launched by the end of 2014 once the numbering or entire buildings and locations completed, which will ultimately help different nationalities who speak around 127 languages in the city of Dubai,” Malik added.
