Building a fully interoperable and spatially enabled government through the development and maintenance of Spatial Data Infrastructures
Geographic information plays a key role for any government, whether it is urban-, transport-, security- or environmental development. In the Middle East the expansion of geographic information systems and their functions have been on a rapid growth.
Over the past decade, governments have realised the need to be able to access and use the vast amounts of data collected on a daily basis. Whilst individual departments or agencies posses the tools to analyse, utilise and disseminate information, this can leave gaps at a governmental or even national level.
Spatial Data Infrastructures Middle East offers you a platform that puts the essential technologies, policies and institutional arrangements in place, to bring together geographic and spatial intelligence. Creating a unified information infrastructure accessible to multiple users.
