Dubai, UAE, September 03, 2007: Dubai World Central (DWC), a colossal 140sq km urban aviation community presently under construction in Jebel Ali, has tied- up with Dubai Municipality’s GIS department to provide e-mapping technology for it to speed up its construction works.

Dubai Municipality’s e-MAP gateway will provide GPS coordinates of all DWC sites. Besides, government resources and the close coordination of government departments in infrastructure planning means that DWC will comply with the highest level of safety and environmental consciousness. Real time aerial and satellite images along with GPS coordinates will enable DWC staff and contractors to minutely identify utility services, urban land plans and land use blueprints within the massive development centred around the upcoming Dubai World Central International Airport (JXB), scheduled to be the world’s largest.

The GIS department will host all geographical data for DWC on dedicated high performance servers, and allow data access using the latest data retrieval technology, in addition to providing satellite images. With the current real estate and property boom, DWC’s real estate division will get the most current information for onsite development and planning, enabling contractors to speed up construction activity.
