Space Imaging Middle East showcase at UAE Innovation Week

on .

Space Imaging Middle East (SIME) was proud to contribute to the first UAE Innovation Week, which took place from the 22nd to the 28th of November, 2015.

This new government initiative, which builds on the UAE’s culture of continual growth and development, provides a platform for entities from the private, public and academic sectors to showcase their innovative concepts and developments.

SIME hosted an event with Umm Al Quwain municipality, during which we displayed our range of geospatial offerings, including very-high resolution satellite imagery, in-house aerial imagery capabilities, 3D and web GIS solutions, and our latest innovation: In-house UAV imagery capture and processing services.

As the first geospatial solutions provider in the region to introduce this UAV service, we were proud to showcase the many successful UAV imagery projects which we have completed within the region in recent years. We were also keen to highlight the eagerness with which our clients have integrated this cutting-edge technology into their businesses, an enthusiasm which well befits the spirit of UAE Innovation Week.

Finally, we closed our showcase by sharing success stories of another of SIME’s recent innovations: our M-Governance GIS solutions. These cutting-edge solutions were designed specifically in accordance to the UAE’s E-Governance Initiative, and were custom-developed to cater to different governmental bodies within the UAE. It was an honour to demonstrate their successful implementations, thus illustrating the way these UAE government initiatives encourage our community to always strive for growth.

We look forward to continuing in the spirit of UAE Innovations Week, and delivering more innovative geospatial solutions that engage and empower our clients.
