Project Experience [10 years]

Current Project:  GIS Web Publishing [Dubai Virtual Map]

                           Dubai Land Department, Government of Dubai, UAE

                   – MapGuide API, ASP, JavaScript, HTML etc

 

Project Description

As a part of e-government implantation by Dubai Government, Dubai Land Department developed a website for publishing Dubai live map on the Internet.  This website would enable Land Department Customers [Land Owners, Buyers, Real Estate, Residents and Tourists] to locate their parcels. Advertise plots for sale; locate plots for sale, on line registration status etc. The site will also help the government to use the map for Demographics purpose.

 

To achieve this we had to convert all the Microstation drawings files containing Dubai Maps in to an intelligent GIS information using AutoCAD Map. The drawings are cleaned and topologies are created. Then GIS data is exported to MapGuide with a change in the Co-ordinate system [Projection].

 

MapGuide is customized using JavaScript, ASP and MapGuide API. The site is developed using HTML, DHTM, JavaSCript, VB Script, ASP, JSP, Front Page, Flash, Adobe Photoshop etc.

 

Current Project:  File Movement & Work Flow Management System – Land Department, Government of Dubai

                   – ASP, ODBC, JavaScript, HTML etc

Project Description

This was an award winning project which enabled Land Department to effectively manage their file movement and work flow management, to enhance the customer service.  This project had 160 screens and was used by more 20 staff at different levels. The system had screens for management to get status, daily, weekly and monthly reports apart from online query on the job status. 

 

This system was developed using ASP, HTML, Front page, JavaScript, Photoshop, Microsoft ACCESS and integrated with Oracle LIS system.
