Jakarta Signs Agreement to Leverage Geospatial Data in City Management

 
Jakarta Governor, Joko Widodo said he will utilize geospatial data in arranging the spatial of the capital city such as determining transportation system, handling flood, arranging residential area and drainage system, et cetera. “Geospatial data in development planning is very important,” said Jokowi, after he signed the MoU between Jakarta Government and BIG at City Hall, Wednesday (3/20).
 
According to Jokowi, the geospatial data could also be utilized by related institutions namely Public Works Department (PU), Transportation Department (Dishub), Housing and Governmental Buildings Department. “Planning cannot be done without proper amount of data,” he told. 
 
Head of BIG, Asep Karsidi stated geospatial data has many purposes, such as handling traffic congestion, flood handling, or social economy data. The acquired data would be nearly real time, because the satellite would not be orbiting above Indonesia every day.
 
Such Geospatial data, can be accessed by the public through www.portaltanahair.indonesia.go.id. There are at least seven layers showing detailed mapping, including the coastline, sea contour and contour to the land, road network and public facilities, water surface and river network, earth object naming or toponymy, administrative boundaries and generic land cover.
 
“With the data, we can also see the land subsidence in Jakarta because of the reference vertical or up-down. So we know Jakarta condition, whether the land is down or not,” he finished.
