i found today the website www.mylocation.ae. This is part of the attempt to get Geo addresses for all Buildings in Dubai. Pretty cool as this finally makes navigation systems useful. Right now my Navigation is not often used as whenever i ask somebody for the address to meet up i get an answer like ‘You know the small hole in the road close to the Indian restaurant’ which does not really help to identify a correct location.
This would really make finding addresses so much easier..
As per the Dubai Municipality’s Geographical Information Systems Department they plan to have the numeration complete by end of 2014. Right now there are 130.000 entities in Dubai in the system.
