RAK first Middle Eastern city to use “Parcel Fabric” geographical data management system 2023

Based on an ESRI certificate, Ras Al Khaimah became the first Middle Eastern city to implement “Parcel Fabric” technology for managing spatial land data.

Ras Al Khaimah Municipality is employing Parcel Fabric technology with the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Centre to handle land plot spatial information. This geographical data is essential to municipal management since it underpins land ownership and other real estate processes.

The system automates data verification while adopting or revising urban plans. The land registry-linked technology will protect Emirate property owners and investors.

Parcel Fabric stores the metrics and metadata needed to utilize and publish cadastral data, such as collection technique, date, geographic precision, and historical lineage. The built-in data quality control algorithms also assure topology and graphic attribution correctness.

The technique improves record accuracy, speeding up land data updates.

Munther bin Shakar, Director-General of Ras Al Khaimah Municipality, said that this technology enhances the accuracy of data in the Emirate’s general plan, streamlines land procedures, and assures excellent results.

This is another example of the Municipality undertaking research and deploying suitable technologies to manage the built environment following worldwide best practices. It will position Ras Al Khaimah as a future metropolis, fulfilling the government’s objective.

The GIS Centre’s Director, Aisha Saif Al Shehhi, said specialized spatial systems for land management and registration were needed owing to the construction sector’s upturn and Ras Al Khaimah’s rapid urban expansion.

This involves data governance and using cutting-edge technology to improve stakeholder services and boost real estate market trust in Ras Al Khaimah. Spatial data depositories, digital maps, data analytics, and innovative technologies like Parcel Fabric will achieve these aims.
