The Centre for Geographic Information Systems (CGIS) of the Ministry of Municipality has completed the mission of aerial photography for all parts of Qatar and Halul Island to produce the 20cm-accuracy-rated aerial photographs and then update the digital linear maps of the country, as part of the implementation stages of the country's aerial surveys project.

The aerial photography, which lasted more than 20 days, contributes to providing all state institutions with aerial photographs and updated digital maps for use within the activities and projects of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament and in all other projects of the State in various fields, including planning, education, health and Ministry of Interior services, as well as supporting decision-making and infrastructure development in the country.

In the work of aerial surveys and remote sensing, the CGIS used manned aircraft to achieve integration with other data sources that the CGIS currently uses, such as satellite images, mobile field surveys and drones.
