Dubai, UAE: Dubai Municipality signed an enterprise license agreement (ELA) with Esri’s United Arab Emirates distributor, GISTEC. “The ELA provides us with the products and flexibility we need as we plan to migrate our existing cadastre and certification management systems to the ArcGIS 10 platform, making it easier to access and use data,” said AbdulHakim Abdul Kareem Malik, Director, Dubai Municipality GIS department.
The agreement aims to make ArcGIS software available throughout the organisation to help meet the planning and operational demands of Dubai’s rapid growth.
With broader access to the latest ArcGIS software, the municipality intends to leverage GIS technology and share geospatial data between departments. The enterprise-wide GIS is expected to improve disaster response capabilities, citizen services and the planning, design, construction, and management of Dubai’s expanding infrastructure and facilities.
