GIS base map project for Ajman municipality


Ajman, UAE, October 01, 2007: The Ajman Municipality and the Navayuga Middle East FTZC concluded an agreement for the development and implementation of the GIS Base Map project for Ajman.

The project will be implemented by Navayuga which will bring the best expertise and professional experience for this project. Navayuga is a leading spatial technology solutions company, having unique capability of GIS and mapping solutions. Incidentally, Navayuga is also successfully implemented the Enterprise-GIS solution for Ras Al-Khaimah. The Navayuga Group is a conglomerate of companies under the flagship Navayuga Engineering Company (NEC) headquartered in Hyderabad, India.

The AJMAN GIS will have all Road features, all Water and water body features, all Building features (Residential, Public, Industrial etc), all vegetation features (trees, groves etc), all utility features (power, water-distribution, sewerage etc), contours and DEM layer, all plots/parcels, other features (not includable in above categories – bill-boards, traffic signals etc), all administrative units and ortho-images from specific aerial surveys and satellite images.

The project is extremely important for Ajman, as it is expected to remove the earlier inconsistency in the plots and parcels and systematically seam and stitch all site plans to provide the Seamless Plot layer. With the use of precise GPS and establishing a geodesic network for Ajman, Navayuga will be able to organize a systematic GIS for the Emirate. Further, the aerial surveys in November, 2007 will enable Ajman to have the most updated and precise maps in GIS format. This Base Map will be crucial in future days to help the Emiarte grow in a systematic manner and bring good governance to its citizens.
