UK: The Kingdom of Bahrain has taken a step closer towards developing a new 3D enabled spatial data model of the nation following a new partnership between Ordnance Survey International and the Survey and Land Registration Bureau (SLRB).
The SLRB is the government organisation responsible for land, aerial and hydrographic survey services and the registration of real estate properties in Bahrain. As part of the recently signed agreement, the SLRB will call upon the expertise of Ordnance Survey International to design and build a new 3D-enabled national spatial data model.
In preparation for the ‘National 3D Mapping of Bahrain’ programme, SLRB needs to move its current geospatial database to an object based data model to support full geometric representations in 3D. The new model will produce intelligent data enabling effective analysis, decision-making and greater consistency in the way SLRB maintains data and distributes it to stakeholders.
