GIS for national development

Whether it’s developing a smart city strategy or making key government data more accessible to citizens – Malaysia’s public sector relies on Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to support a broad range of national development efforts.  

GIS technology integrates and analyses data and visually represents it via the compelling format of an interactive map – enabling decision makers to refine their understanding of a situation like never before.

Armed with this insight, planners can forecast future community needs, improve public service delivery, facilitate more liveable communities and drive economic prosperity.
