Aspaital of Location and plants Belonging to MIM
The Department of Information relied on scientific experience and
capabilities available in the Information Division to compete for
the execution of a project (define the project (Define the locations
and plants belonging to MIM) which was declared as a tender.
A contract was signed between GEOSURV and the Centre of Information
and Scientific Knowledge.
The work was accomplished within a typical period because of the
efforts of the employees in the Division and by adopting a new
techniques and softwares in the GIS field. Also trained the members
of the Information Centre on using this system because it is the
first in Iraq and it also represents a huge step towards
establishing the electronic government.
The Head of the Information Centre was proud to announce these news
to the media.
The local gazettes have previously published the news of
accomplishing the project of the system related to define the
Aspaital of the companies and plants belonging to the MIM.
This project was executed by the Centre of Information and
Scientific Knowledge in the MIM.
The Head of the Centre has mentioned that the project aims to
allocating the location and plants belonging to MIM and providing
applications of decision support to enable the officials of
preparing scientific plans for the industrial sector depending on
its aspaital data, and also unifying the various databases related
to the industry sector which are available in the ministry and
connecting them with the interactive maps of the rest of the state
