„Mapping and Geodata Licensing (MGDL) Project“ for Government of Sharjah, Centre for Geospatial Information, Sharjah, U.A.E.

Contractor: ILV Fernerkundung GmbH, Germany

Short description

The client requested a web-based solution in order to provide authorities, business structures and private users with up-to-date geodata of Sharjah. Therefore a new base GIS of the Emirate of Sharjah had to be created with accuracies of 25 cm (urban areas) and 40 cm (desert areas). More than 170 different feature classes were required. The main topographic data were acquired during 2 digital photoflight campaigns. These data where processed and then completed by a comprehensive field survey for attribute data collection.
The web-based data licensing application was developed by the project partner INTERGRAPH Middle East.
