Dubai Municipality supported and trained Engineer Maitha Al Nuaimi, GIS Specialist, to be the first Emirati lady to obtain a 3D Camera Drone license in Dubai from the Civil Aviation Authority. Al Nuaimi is the first Emirati engineer to be named captain of this type of aircraft in Dubai.
The move is based on Dubai Municipality’s keenness to support, train and develop the skills of its cadres in various fields and its strategy aimed at refining these skills and developing them in order to reach the distinguished goals and achievements at the national level.
Mariam Al Muhairi, Director of Geographic Information Systems Department in Dubai Municipality, said: “The development of the talents and skills of the Municipality staff is one of the most important priorities that we are keen to constantly implement and make it a reality. We always strive to provide the supportive environment that helps them to raise their performance to offer the best, which is reflected in enhancing the quality of services provided by Dubai Municipality to the community.”
“The Municipality has laid the foundations for providing spatial data and maps to government agencies, the private sector and individuals in the Emirate of Dubai, as well as for using the latest technologies in spatial data collection, development, scrutiny, archiving, analysis and making them available to decision-makers of all executive, planning, regulatory and legislative levels, with the aim of improving the business environment and enhancing levels of the growth of productivity,” said Al Muhairi.
By obtaining the license, Al Nuaimi will be able to use a specialized drone owned by Dubai Municipality and equipped with cameras with advanced technical standards in the field of 3D maps production. She has undergone two types of training, one on the criteria of operating the drone and how to control it remotely and the other on how to use 3D imaging technology.
The support of Dubai Municipality to Al Nuaimi reiterates its belief in empowering women and providing them with all possible means to achieve their ambitions and objectives and also reflects the Government’s vision of supporting UAE women in all fields.
