As part of ARRUS’s wider involvement as a consultant on various urban planning and design projects in Downtown Doha, we carried out an extensive GIS-based survey of 9 urban zones with mixed land use and a deep historic significance and character. The zones were surveyed to identify the existing uses, occupancy, access and potential for redevelopment, either as adaptive re-use or anew. The survey formed the basis for zone-based urban design studies. Data was collected on site using the mobile application ‘Collector for ArcGIS’ , linked to ArcGIS online.
Attributes for existing site features were updated on site. Collected photographs were geolocated and displayed on Google Earth allowing to convey the message in an easy and clear manner to our clients.
