Hyderabad is the second
largest city of Sindh and a rapidly growing urban center. However the
absence of a Master Plan and detailed baseline geographic information of
Hyderabad was resulting in a haphazard urban sprawl, wide spread katchi
abadis / slums and gross deficiencies of required infrastructure /
utilities, constraining the potential economic opportunities of Hyderabad.
Taking stock of the situation, the District Government launched theHYDERABAD MASTER PLAN 2027
project which adopted a two tier approach of planning and development. At
first, it started from immediate actions to
address the dire needed issues in existing infrastructure and utilities.
Secondly, District Government found it imperative that a long term
Master Plan with a visionary and futuristic outlook
is formulated as the most important project to set out a strategic
framework and overall development direction and future patterns of the city
over the next 20 years and beyond.
District Govt. Hyderabad is also proud to launch theHYDERABAD GIS PROJECT, which is first of its kind project undertaken
by any city in Pakistan. Latest technology of
Geographical Information System (GIS) is being used for mapping of all main
land features in Hyderabad city. Focus of the GIS project is on Detailed
Base Map, Water Distribution GIS, Sewerage & Drainage GIS, Land Marks
GIS, Education GIS, Health GIS, Transportation GIS, and Plot Level Property
GIS. Hyderabad Master Plan encompasses the requirements of Hyderabad up to
the year 2027 in the following sectors
The Goal of GIS project is to
establish a central GIS repository of Hyderabad city that would provide
spatial (mapping) data and GIS related services to all Planning, Development,
Municipal, and Utility departments working in the city. For the General
Public & Business Community, it aims to provide world class user
friendly features through internet to locate all major Roads, Govt.
offices, Educational facilities (from Universities to Private Schools),
Health facilities (from Hospitals to Drug stores), and ultimately each
& every plot in the city. In the Phase 1 (currently under execution),
major focus is towards DEVELOPING a seamless digital map of Hyderabad city with
the all main features whereas in Phase 2 emphasis will be towards providing
SERVICES through this GIS system to all stakeholders in the city.
Hyderabad GIS Project is going to bring Hyderabad city on the
Internet Map of the world, and will Insha-Allah make
Hyderabad most user friendly & organized city in Pakistan as it will
not only help the District Govt. & related Departments to proper plan,
execute, monitor & manage the city; but it will also help both the
Residents & Visitors to easily locate most organization, business, or
residential addresses in Hyderabad. Some pubic features of the project are
being web deployed for the general public as a public service at this
stage. So, I welcome you on this website, and hope that you will find this
website as a useful tool. These projects were awarded to Master Plan and
GIS Consultants (Osmani & Company Pvt. Ltd.), who are working on day
& night basis to make the dream a reality within a short period of
time, and both projects are near finalization.
