The GeoDubai aerial photography project is one of the most important strategic projects implemented by the GIS Center as part of its GeoDubai initiative. The project, which will generate a twin 3D geospatial model to update the base map and inventory of the assets of government entities in Dubai, is part of the broader mandate of the Municipality's GIS Center to collect aerial photographs and geographic data for the entire emirate. The aerial photographs taken by the GeoDubai aircraft, which have a high accuracy of 10 centimeters, provide key inputs for decision-making and development plans and solutions. The implementation of this technologically advanced project enhances Dubai's and the GIS Center's position as a leading centre for the analysis and presentation of geospatial data and images. The project maintains the highest standards of accuracy and technical distinction in line with the needs of strategic partners. The project is divided into several phases. The first phase involves preparing the ground control points, then determining the aircraft lines for the survey and carrying out aerial photography, after that the stage of image processing and the preparation of digital models and corrected images, the last stage is image analysis and data extraction.
