Ordnance Survey has entered a contract to work with the Dubai Government in developing its geospatial capabilities.
The landmark deal, a first for Ordnance Survey, will see Great Britain’s national mapping agency begin work with the Dubai Municipality to create a Geospatial Services Centre, which will support the Dubai Government across a wide range of activities.
Ordnance Survey International Managing Director, Peter Hedlund said: “Great Britain is widely regarded as having one of, if not the best geospatial infrastructure in the world that serves government, business and citizens, and the aim is for the Geospatial Services Centre to be the Ordnance Survey of Dubai.
“Together with the Dubai Municipality we will boost the single source of truth for geospatial data that the Dubai Government and its partners can use to deliver on its development goals, in policy making and for optimising public services.
“It will provide the foundation on which Dubai can innovate, manage and build its future.”
