For a desert country like Kuwait, developing agriculture is a difficult job, especially the area surrounded by military constructions. Sabah Al-Ahmad Nature Reserve is one of the affected sites by the remains of more than 240,000 military fortifications at the north of Kuwait Bay. For remediating the damaged area, PAAF cooperates with International Integrated Environmental Services Ltd (IIES), Supergeo Platinum Reseller in Kuwait, to collect field data and set up the enterprise GIS database for military fortifications, concrete blocks and other components.
The main establishments of the project are to utilize survey methodologies, high resolution satellite images and GIS-based software packages to accomplish the objectives. The needed field data is captured through SuperPad, the professional GIS application, and synchronized to SuperGIS Desktop to process, analyze and produce various kinds of map to meet different demands. And then, the project manager can publish satellite images and the GIS layers via SuperGIS Server on the website.
With SuperGIS total solutions, all current and historical attributes for field operations such as vegetation cover, military fortifications, drainage system, Surface sediments, etc., can be perfectly managed and edited by different focused software applications.
For example, through SuperGIS Biodiversity Analyst, users can produce Biodiversity Geo-Atlas to manage images and information of plants, animals, species, and vegetations for determining the usage of a zone wisely.
This project successfully integrated and analyzed huge data to overcome the nature limits and artificial damages in Kuwait. Its outstanding performance also won SuperGIS Application Excellence Award 2013. The Awardee, Public Authority for Agriculture and Fish Resource, Kuwait will receive the Award during the Conference of Discover GIS in Salwa Hall, Kuwait by Supergeo.
