Dubai Municipality will be organizing a seminar titled "Dubai Municipality experience in using Airborne Hydrographic Lidar Survey Technique to cover the coastal zone of Dubai Emirate" on Thursday, 26th February at 9am at the City Hall of the main building.

Eng. Alia Al Harmoudi, Head of Coastal Zone Management and Waterways Section in the Environment Department said the seminar is being conducted as part of its keenness to highlight the important and effective role played by the Municipality towards the society in enhancing the services provided to the public.
"It is also part of the ongoing specialised forums and seminars held by the Municipality in order to talk about the qualitative change the civic body is adding to the development operations used for marine and coastal projects," said Al Harmoudi.
A detailed presentation will be given on the survey project using Lidar Technique on Dubai coasts, which is being implemented by the Municipality. The seminar, to be addressed by Dr. Claudia Carmela Giarusso, will highlight the objectives and results of the project and how to benefit from the modern technique in managing and planning coastal zones in the emirate of Dubai. Other techniques and methods followed by the Municipality for its coastal area monitoring programme will also be presented in the seminar
