Through its stand at the accompanying exhibition held on the sidelines of the Geological Day, the Municipality briefed students and visitors on its key achievements in establishing a spatial database and supporting e-services delivery through a number of projects in its endeavours to upgrade geographical information systems, survey, and the addressing systems, linked to the priority of boosting sustainable urban development under the vision of the Municipal System, which in turn is aimed at realising sustainable development and enhancing the quality of living standards in Abu Dhabi Emirate.

The projects of the Spatial Data Division at the Abu Dhabi City Municipality contributed to providing a strategic stock of information and geographical data, which supported decision makers and the sweeping development drive.
