Data sharing that support decision making
Save time & money
Better record keeping
Intructor: Dr. Muhammad Alnaemi
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
GIS has become less expensive, faster, and easier to use.
The cost of developing GIS databases has also dropped.
The Benefit of GIS in Municipality
Geographic Information System (GIS) technology has found its way into many municipalities across the United Arab Emirates .
It is important to recognize that GIS implementation within a municipality, whether large or small, represents a significant investment in staff resources and funding as an Information Technology (IT) project.
GIS technology targeted at municipal governments must be consistent with the:
Available geographic information and tools.
Skills of the municipal personnel.
The implementation must therefore be managed like any major IT project to achieve benefits.
Al AIN Municipality is a government institution basically directed to serve Al Ain Area, which covers Al Ain City and the neighboring areas.
Al Ain Municipality Department was established in 1967.
Al Ain city Municipality stands as a leading institution of development in the area.
This is due to the role it plays and the programs and services it delivers for improving the quality of life to the highest possible standards.
The Town planning and Survey sector which divided into 3 departments:
Building permits department
Spatial data department :
Maps planning, GIS, and ground survey section
Urban planning department
The structure of the GIS section includes:
GIS development and planning unit
Spatial data processing unit
Geographic data quality unit
We have chosen to make an evaluation on the whole section.
Prepared the questionnaires according to the five main components of GIS
Make an appointment to meet the head of the section
We met the head of the GIS section Mr. Ahmed AlShamsi
Get the answers of our questions and discuss about our project.
Collect more information that related to our project.
As a final point, we evaluated the answers.
“Evaluation of GIS Department of Urban Planning sector in Al Ain Municipality “ Steps.
Visit Al Ain municipality to get the Information about the Sectors they have
They get their spatial data from different sources such as orthophoto, satellite, land survey, paper maps and Lidar.
The GIS section in Town planning department is satisfied with the accuracy of their data.
can be used as a base map in a GIS.
GIS section updates their orthophotos data once a year or sometimes it depends on their necessity.
The accuracy of orthophoto : is about 20cm.
The other source of data is satellite image.
The GIS section has used many types of satellite image such as
1. IKONOS : 4 m resolution( black /white )
1 m (color).
2. IRS : 5 m resolution.
3. Landsat 1972 / Landsat ETM : 57 meter.
4. Dubai Sat : 2.5 meter .
It generates stores, analyzes, manipulates and presents geographic information or data.
GIS Section's Software:
Micro station (50)
The license allows the end-users to use one or more copies of software
Intergraph Middle East
Physical part of a computer e.g disk drive storage unit provides space for storing data and programs.
GIS Section has 13 Workstations, 3 Plotters, Printers and Scanners.
To show how GIS section in Town Planning and Survey sector of Al Ain municipality applies the five components and evaluate it.
To investigate the latest GIS applications they work on.
