Dubai: The Geographic Information Systems Department at Dubai Municipality is planning to update its existing database of maps and raster data. The department has therefore decided to go for aerial surveys of the city. The project will be carried out by Space Imaging Middle East (SIME).
SIME has announced that the aerial surveys will commence in October 2013. They will cover an area of 3000 sq km and capture imagery at the resolution of 35cm. The data collected from this project will be used to accurately reflect recent changes in the city’s critical infrastructure, and will provide current and reliable foundation from which to plan any future expansion and development. Dubai Municipality will provide these up-to-date aerial images to its strategic partners.
