Aerial Survey Contract for Riyadh City - 15/08/2011

The Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA, Saudi Arabia) has awarded a contract to Vision ME for the collection of Airborne Lidar, covering Wadi Hanifah and Wadi Alsully. This is one of the largest airborne Lidar projects undertaken in the Middle East region. The project area covers almost 6,000 square kilometres and the Lidar data will be utilised to generate an accurate Digital Terrain Model (DTM).


The DTM dataset will support ADA activities including, flood-modelling, urban planning,

environmental study as well as updating and expanding the GIS database. The project will

be executed and delivered within a twelve-month program.


After winning a large Lidar survey in Jeddah late 2010, this contract confirms that Vision's

strategy to focus its activities in the growing economy of Saudi Arabia has given results.
