In preparation of the Dubai Rail Master Plan, GIS provided comprehensive mapping and was used for analysis. The GIS developed became integral to the planners, designers and developers assessing future demands of the Dubai Metro. Additionally, methods were developed to create and evaluate scenario based land use plans and socioeconomic projections to accommodate new growth in a more compact and less auto-dependent manner.
