Meet Ordnance Survey International in Dubai


Ordnance Survey International is organizing an event in Dubai on 9 May 2017 at Burj Al-Arab.

Our senior partner Kaveh Vessali is participating to talk about Smart Cities and Geospatial Data.

Event summary:

Geospatial Ideas. Shared.

A spatial data infrastructure (SDI) is key to enabling data sharing across public bodies in Dubai and the UAE to improve policy decision making, increase efficiency and advance citizen happiness. In order to facilitate this, fundamental data required for a SDI must first be identified, and during this event stakeholders from across Dubai will debate and discuss in an open forum.
