The work being carried out by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy’s (SC) Geographic Information Systems (GIS) team has been honored at a special gathering in Doha. The department, responsible for mapping the rapid infrastructure progress across the country, received a special award for the Application of Geospatial Technology at National Level from the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME).

GIS & BIM Senior Manager at the SC, Nasser Al Kuwari said: “We are delighted that our work has been recognised by the MME, and look forward to working closely with our stakeholders over the next five years and beyond as we continue to deliver amazingly for Qatar. “We are living in a momentous period in Qatars history with progress and development happening on an almost daily basis, and it is a great privilege to be part of the team charged with documenting this journey. When visitors come to Qatar they often comment that Google Maps cannot keep up with the rapid changes, but building on our enhanced access to updated information — we are proud to say we can.”

The event, which was organised to mark World GIS Day, was attended by more than 130 Geographic Information Systems, IT and engineering professionals.
