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.

  • Located on the Saudi Arabian Peninsula
    The main objective of the study consisted of a comprehensive review of Dubai's projected growth to determine demand for public transport and plan for the implementation of rail infrastructure to meet the demand.
