GIS and Project Database Workshop

A back-to-back workshop for GIS Tool & Project Database, to be presented by Noor Jahan from 5Capitals and Sibi Vetha Raj from Dii respectively. Please contact us if you want to participate in this workshop.

The Dii Project Database provides the basic & technical details about the various Renewable Energy (Solar & Wind energy) projects in any particular geographical region. The project database has been developed & maintained by Dii that provides you the latest information related to the projects in the Middle East, North Africa & Turkey region.

In the project database, one can search the projects by the country or the technology involved or the project title. When logged in, the users can have access to projects with their capacity, budget, owner, location of project, etc. A map displays the location of the projects and clicking on the projects displays the details about the project. Whereas the database system contains vast data about the projects regarding the companies involved and the specifications of the equipments used in the project with their supplier. Multimedia contents (Picture/ Document) related to the project are attached to the projects for a better clarity. Moreover one can find the news related to them. But for the time being, we are displaying only the basic details and in due course we would display maximum contents ‘in-depth’ as possible.

Project Database is now on final stage of development, covering identified renewable energy projects in MENAT countries. Data includes location, technical specifications and specific information about the companies involved in the project.

Dii’s Geographic information system (GIS) helps collect, store, query, analyze, and visualize spatially-associated data and information serving various purposes of various stakeholders in the market for RE in MENAT. Thanks to GIS, one will get a full picture of a specific site or area by correlating a whole set of chosen data for a particular project or task. In the renewable energy sector, GIS is used as a key tool for spatial decisions especially when it comes to identifying the best wind and solar sites.

As a market enabler for renewable energy, Dii has developed an intuitive Solar and Wind WebMap / WebApp to assist people in assessing potential areas in Middle East, North Africa and Turkey. Users have access to quantitative data such as topography, land cover, protected areas, and qualitative information like the proximity to infrastructure, water availability or other environmental aspects. They can combine this data by activating different layers on the map in order to pinpoint and evaluate suitable sites for wind and solar projects. For its Solar and Wind Mapping Application, Dii uses high resolution data from several sources including – but not limited to – SRTM, MODIS, MERRA, and HelioClim3. The Dii GIS Geodatabase is intuitive and constantly being updated and improved.

With the help of our Partner 5Capitals the GIS Tool has been extended with new geographic information covering all MENAT countries. Dii/5Capitals will assist partners on demand with site assessments, cost estimates and planning of projects.
