Commenting on the MoU, Al Muhairi said in a statement: “Dubai Municipality has launched the geo-Dubai infrastructure project, which aims to provide a comprehensive, unified and up-to-date baseline map for the Emirate of Dubai, as well as geospatial systems, to create and update planning maps for the construction sector.

“This will ensure decision makers, investors and people working in this field, can access maps from one source easily and quickly, using the latest geotechnical technologies, which saves time and effort and contributes to the construction of a smart city."
