The awards acknowledge exceptional GIS implementation programs, highlighting their distinctiveness in cultivating experimentation and innovation in the area of GIS Implementation.

ADPC is a master developer of ports and industrial zones. Its purpose is to create a sustainable growth platform that spurs economic expansion and diversification for Abu Dhabi by developing world-class infrastructure, real-estate and business services in conjunction with the private sector.
