From its platform in the Dubai International Government Achievements Exhibition 2018, Dubai Statistics Center (DSC) has unveiled on Wednesday 11, 2018 its new statistical tool named "Air Statistician". The new UAV is featured for executing far high accurate statistical surveys of the most difficult terrains and regions covering buildings, traffic and other inaccessible locations. Based on such qualities, the new device is offering the decision makers accurate field statistical information.

Tariq Al Janahi, Deputy Executive Director of DSC and CEO of Happiness and Positivity, said: "DSC is the first among its counterparts in the State to use this new statistical device. It is featured for providing far high accurate data that exceeds the minimal level, besides it operates for straight 40 minutes and flies for a distance of seven kilometers. Researches are underway for developing this tool to provide more accurate statistical units."

On the details of implementing this unique project, he stated that the "Air Statistician" Project will be executed in accordance with a phased plan. He added: "The first phase includes conducting field surveys of buildings, housing units, covering the hard-to-reach areas and statistical units in desert areas and updating maps of 3D GIS."
