flattr this!       

Press release from enn.com: One of the UK’s leading providers of professional mapping solutions is expanding into the Middle East market by launching a Saudi company specialising in GIS and environmental monitoring.

Emapsite Middle East has opened an office in Jeddah with an experienced team handling consultancy, training and technical contracts with government and business clients.

The company, officially launched at the Gulf Environment Forum (29 – 31 May 2011), reflects a rapidly growing order book for Emapsite services across the region.

Justin Saunders, International Director of Emapsite Middle East, said the move comes amid growing recognition in the Gulf of the importance of GIS and hi-res satellite image integration.

Mr Saunders said: “It’s a natural step given our specialist expertise and the rising demand in the Middle East for GIS as a critical part of engineering, environmental and multidisciplinary projects. We are ideally placed to help clients recognise and follow key environmental practices. We want our work to enable government and private sector organisations to play an active part in establishing a sustainable and environmentally responsible region for generations to come.”

As well as GIS and environmental monitoring, Emapsite Middle East brings together a range of experience in environmental impact assessments, habitat and ecosystems mapping, engineering and construction, and urban and infrastructure planning.

Emapsite has for the past 17 months deployed consultants on a series of environmental projects in Saudi Arabia. They include a substantial baseline survey and coastal mapping of habitats for the Red Sea with the Presidency of Meteorology & Environment and an important GIS input into a fisheries project with the Ministry of Agriculture.

As well as GIS itself, Emapsite Middle East will offer related geomatics tools and technologies, needs assessments, systems analysis and functional requirements for GIS applications.

Services will range from data collection and geocoding through to database integration and spatial analysis.

Mr Saunders said: “Emapsite has worked as consultants for a diverse range of international projects. We use the latest technology for designing and implementing information management projects and systems. Emapsite Middle East will continue to build on our reputation for professionalism, timely delivery and service.”

The Gulf Environment Forum, held at the Jeddah Hilton, is the only official environment conference and exhibition to take place in Saudi Arabia. Delegates represent industry sectors including renewable energy, water conservation, waste management and environmental technologies.

Emapsite Middle East is on Stand G-10. Company representatives will also be giving details of the new company in the UK Pavilion hosted by UK Trade & Industry on Stand H-09.
