Dubai, 12 April 2006: The map of Dubai is going to be available on the Internet, with three levels of navigation to deliver information about the different areas of Dubai with a locator system for buildings, roads and districts. Three thematic maps will also be available with themes of government, free zones and parks. By January 2007 the full locator system for the main buildings and roads of the whole emirate is supposed to be online.
The project, dubbed Dubai 3D City aims to help manage different departments of the emirate, such as municipality, police, security, fire department, infrastructure developments, maps editing and roads planning through projects implantation and visualization.
It is through the cooperation of Dubai GIS Centre and French Concept Digital Solutions Company that this vision of the Municipality is being realized. The project is at its second stage right now which is engaged in the development of different levels of navigation through satellite maps according to different altitudes, and development of the main and secondary roads in Dubai, main buildings of the city, artificial lands such as islands, and the parks (21 in all) of Dubai in 3D. By January 2007 the full locator system for the main buildings and roads of the whole emirate will be online.
