Hungarian geoinformatics specialists present in Dubai
Modern city mapping and geoinformatic solutions can play a key role within the next years regarding the realization of infrastructural and city development plans of the countries around the Persian Gulf. The Hungarian geodesic experts have already proven their knowledge and the utility of using the most recent geoinformatic technologies in several points of the world. Their introduction for the Persian Gulf’s professional audience took place on August 16-17. during the GeoBIM Middle-East 2015 conference, highlighting how the 3D point cloud technology can support Building Information Modelling and even more the general development of the GCC region – emphasized the experts of Geodezia International.
Budapest, 24th August. 2015. The investment-boom in the Persian Gulf countries is not expected to ease in the next years. Although already 90 percent of the so-called GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries’ population lives in cities, the constantly expanding economy’s and the quickly growing population’s needs generate further developments. In the six GCC member states (Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Saudi-Arabia) the overall value of investments in constructions was 156 billion dollars in 2013 and 180 billion dollars last year. The magnitude of following years’ developments is well shown by the fact that the value of investments in constructions in – World cup hosting – Qatar alone will reach 220 billion dollars by 2022. In line with it the sources dedicated for the development of the railway system will also exceed 50 billion dollars.
“At developments with such volume it is crucial that investors evaluate the expected costs accurately. Additionally, modern city mapping and geoinformatic solutions can play a key role during the scheming of projects” – said László Stekl, spokesperson of Geodezia International. The most important principle of geoinfomatics or Geographic Information System (GIS) is to map the connections between various spatial objects by the usage of IT tools. Via such methodology it can construct three-dimensional maps about the examined territories with the elaboration and accuracy unimaginable before. The process can make the design, measurement or controlling tasks more efficient on various fields, whether it is about the development of traffic- or utility-networks, or the construction of new buildings and other art works.
Geodezia International, which is quoted as Europe’s largest geodesic and geoinformatics company, has already demonstrated what the Hungarian experts are capable of via a prototype project realized in Bahrain. As a following step, the company wishes to demonstrate the potentials in geoinformatics on the GeoBIM Middle-East 2015 Conference took place in Dubai on August 16-17.
Hungarian land and parcel registry has outstanding standards even on an international level, which is part of why Hungarian experts’ knowledge is admired around the world. This verifies how the company won and executed geoinformatic projects not only in Hungary, but also successfully entered such highly important markets like the European and North-African.
“Subsequently we would like to use our experiences in the countries around the Persian Gulf by enriching domestic knowledge with our special land-measuring, city mapping and geoinformatic solutions based on 3D point cloud technology” – said László Stekl. The spokesperson of Geodezia International added: the goal of the company by participating in the GeoBIM Middle-East 2015 conference is to closely show to potential users how to make the scheming, measuring and controlling tasks faster, cheaper and more efficient on the field public services and in various sectors of the economy by using geoinformatic solutions.
About Geodézia International:
GEODEZIA is the largest geodesic and geographic information company in Europe focusing not only on GIS data collection, but undertaking complete implementation of complex, customer-designed, unique geographic information solutions (from database-building to system operation), almost solitarily as a European company. In the new, 2014-established data processing centre of the 65 years old company – equipped with the most modern technology – 40 highly trained and experienced engineers work constantly for the process of the data extracted in different projects. By the use of innovative geographic informatics technologies the company, besides the classic geodesic assignments (for instance, the creation of land cadastres), takes such special cartographic jobs as the development of public utility maps, noise maps and establishment management maps.Geodezia International considers the Middle-East GCC region as the most important international market for its future growth therefore the company has been establishing its regional office in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain.
