OS: The Kingdom of Bahrain has taken a step closer to developing a new 3D enabled spatial data model of the nation following a new partnership between Ordnance Survey International and the Survey and Land Registration Bureau (SLRB)
 
In preparation for the ‘National 3D Mapping of Bahrain’ programme, SLRB needs to move its current geospatial database to an object based data model to support full geometric representations in 3D.  

The model will be built on industry standards from the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).  Use of open standards will provide SLRB and its stakeholders with a consistent, standardised and shared view of location information.
