(May 7, 2014/Abu Dhabi, UAE) The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), won an Excellence in GIS Implementation (EGI) Award at the 2014 GISWORX conference in Dubai, UAE. A leader in the information technology industry specializing in geospatial solutions, GeoDecisions developed the EGI award-winning GeoPlanner web portal and the Project and Task Management System for the UPC in 10 months while working in Abu Dhabi.
GeoPlanner and the Project and Task Management System facilitate planning processes and collaboration internally within the UPC and externally between Abu Dhabi municipalities and development companies. The geospatial tools enable UPC urban planners and external planning stakeholders to easily identify framework plans, master plans, planning policies, and regulations for any location; better organize documents and data in various formats; and track development proposal reviews and approvals.
“GeoDecisions is excited that the UPC has been recognized by the international community with a 2014 EGI Award,” said Robert R. Marsters, PMP, director of GeoDecisions international business development based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. “We’re working hard to provide the UPC with top-shelf geospatial technology and support UPC’s long-term vision to enhance the quality of life for all those residing in the Emirate.”
The UPC plans Abu Dhabi’s urban environments, including sustainability, infrastructure capacity, community planning, and quality of life. GISWORX’ EGI Award recognizes innovative and outstanding geospatial systems that enhance evidence-based planning, decision-making, and advanced spatial analysis.
