GeoPlanner 2 and GeoPad Unveiled

Launch of latest technologies coincides with World GIS Day, which sees more than 80 countries celebrate how GeoSpatial technology is shaping the world.

The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (the UPC) today unveiled two important new Geographical Information Systems (GIS) initiatives. The first, GeoPlanner Version 2, is an updated addition of the Council's hugely successful GeoPlanner technology while the second, GeoPad, comprises state-of-the-art planning software especially for use on the iPad. Both initiatives once again prove the UPC's commitment to employing the latest, ground-breaking technology to facilitate the urban planning process in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The launch of these latest technologies coincides with World GIS Day, the international forum that sees users of GIS technology around the world demonstrate how real-world applications are making a difference to society.

GIS technology is a highly valuable component in all of the UPC's business activities and, aligned with the guiding principles of Vision 2030, it is vital in helping the Council's planners define the shape of the Emirate. The clear goal of GIS is to inform the decision-making process by integrating data from an array of different sources and visualising the whole planning process. These latest GIS technologies and capabilities are being shared with the UPC team today, through a series of demonstrations and interactive workshops.
