Dubai launches largest smart geological project

Dubai Municipality has launched the largest geological project in the Middle East, the Soil Map Project, that involves production and extraction of interactive soil maps using soil survey data and saving them in a centralised and unified database, said a report.

The project is particularly significant because of the maps' importance in the design and construction of buildings and for conducting geological studies before the establishment of large projects such as dams, bridges, tunnels, high-rise buildings and towers, reported the state news agency Wam.

The key objectives include simplifying the work procedures for the end user, reducing paper consumption, conservation of natural resources, cutting per capita consumption of gasoline and achieving the vision of the municipality through its initiative, Zero Visit to the municipality, stated the report, citing a top official.

"It’s important to provide comprehensive records supported with maps of each area in Dubai in a central and unified database," said Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director-General of Dubai Municipality.

According to him, the key benefits of the project include contribution to the transparency required in order to obtain the correct and accurate information about the soil.

The project is also aimed at facilitating the use of soil maps in the study and analysis of soil and soil data, soil type, soil layers, the groundwater level, chemical and physical properties, in the form of interactive maps, it added.
