SHARJAH: The Sharjah Executive Council, SEC, on Tuesday morning adopted the “Aerial Photography” Project submitted by the Sharjah Department of Planning and Survey, SDPS.

This came during the SEC’s meeting, which was chaired by Sheikh Abdullah Bin Salem Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah and Deputy Chairman of the SEC.

Commenting on this development, Khalid Bin Butti Al Muhairi, Director of the SDPS, said that the project aims to cover the geographic scope of the emirate of Sharjah and provide geospatial data. It also monitors the city’s growth and development stages and facilitates the study of urban planning.

The new project also monitors the development of the facilities and services and the demographic expansion.

Al Muhairi also pointed out that the Sharjah Aerial Photography Project is one of the most important modern means that provides geospatial data for regions and cities based on the latest technologies.

He highlighted the importance of the Aerial Photography Project in facilitating the planning of several areas and precisely identifying different zones. It also aims to follow up on the stages of the city’s development; facilitate the study of urban planning; identify the planning’s problems and their resolution; and obtain high-resolution photographs.

He further added that from 1999 to 2017, the SDPS implemented a total of 10 periodic aerial photography projects, in order to provide geospatial data for the emirate of Sharjah and monitor the stages of development in the population, industrial and service sectors in the emirate.

Al Muhairi said that the time-saving project will cover 1,476 square kilometres in the emirate of Sharjah, providing contour lines for the emirate through the provision of cadastral reports, and figure out the site’s details.
