May 26, 2021

RIYADH — The General Authority for Survey and Geospatial Information (GASGI) has launched the second improved and updated version of the National Geospatial Platform as part of its efforts in developing the geospatial infrastructure.

The platform, whose first version was launched in February 2020, aims at providing geospatial data produced by various government bodies at the national level through one window to enhance sharing geospatial data and information among various sectors and facilitate access to them, where the geospatial information is considered a support and empowerment to the economy, development, security, and decision making.

The National Geospatial Platform provides multiple geospatial data, information and services for beneficiaries according to a certain publication policy.

This improved version included developing various tools and applications that help in searching, analyzing and sharing data.

This is in addition to the fact that the platform provides more than one way to share data, such as sharing data through web services that enables beneficiary institutions to receive data in a real time manner and benefit from any updates on data and information immediately.

The Authority also works on updating available data constantly in cooperation with relevant partners. It also works on developing services, tools, applications and the platform security on a regular basis in a way that serves the survey and geospatial sector, preserves the security of geospatial data and promotes sharing.

The General Authority for Survey and Geospatial Information calls on all sides to benefit from this platform through registration and reviewing available tools and services. The platform can be reached through the website of the Authority: www.gasgi.gov.sa. — SPA
