Whole Brunei is now available on 3-D map

The entire sultanate of Brunei Darussalam can now be seen in 3-D. The implementation of this project was revealed in December 2010 by the Ministry of Development that through the Brunei Survey Department has successfully completed one of the National Development Plan (2007-2012) projects that involves aerial surveys i.e. a 3-Dimensional Digital Terrain Model (DEM). Using the most accurate laser scanning technology known as LiDAR, the project began in 2009. Data measured on the ground is at every one-metre distance apart (exceeding six billion measurements for the whole country) with 15 cm accuracy (horizontal and vertical) in areas including forest areas, where tree heights can also be estimated by using the information of the top of the canopy and the ground elevation. This endeavour has made Brunei among the best mapped countries in the world by providing highly valuable, and positive impact on its natural resource management, flood mitigation, climate change, forest conservation programme and improved urban and rural development.
According to Haji Mohammed Jamil bin Haji Mohammed Ali, the Surveyor General, the Survey Department has plans to provide the data through the Web Geoportal. According to him, among the challenges would be marketing the product to stakeholders and interested local companies.
