Developing Land Base Maps From Satellite Image

Spatial data are the key stone in any GIS project, its availability and

updating considered as the key factor for the success of any GIS in

the world. STC as the incumbent telephone provider in Saudi Arabia

started its GIS project 7 years ago and faced huge problem with the

data conversion of the telephone networks. Part of this problem was

the lack of the availability of land base for all urban and rural area in

the Kingdom. To solve this issue STC has adopted an ambitious

program to develop land base maps using high resolution satellite

images. The present paper will tackle this issue and show how

STC used satellite techniques to develop land base
