Dubai launches digital mapping system for landmarks, infrastructure


Dubai Municipality has launched an electronic system that provides access to geospatial data and maps of the emirate.

It features digital 2D and 3D replicas of all the landmarks and infrastructure facilities with details ranging from building masterplans and interiors to external green areas, bridges, tunnels and service lines.

The system called ‘Dubai Here’ also provides access to details of housing units and information on economic activity, the environment, health and population. 

It’s accessible on a web browser or smart device, and is designed to be easily updated.

The project will help officials with urban planning and managing services related to infrastructure, security and health.

The municipality has also signed an agreement with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) for enhanced cooperation in the geospatial infrastructure of Dubai.
