He noted that the launch of the GIS is a major step towards achieving the objectives of the free zone to provide the best solutions and systems to its partners, whether individuals or companies.
The event serves as a major platform to highlight AFZ’s remarkable progress in developing digital infrastructure and accelerating the pace of digital transformation to create a competitive and attractive business environment that meets the demands and the expectations of investors seeking to take advantage of the promising opportunities available in Ajman.

The Geographic Information System offers a comprehensive set of integrated services that provide customers with direct access to accurate information about AFZ locations, with a map that shows vacant areas, including all related facilities and locations to proximity. The system also includes 360-degree images for evaluation and virtual inspection of the site before booking it, as well as a virtual navigation assistant. In addition, it allows virtual and real interaction with the AFZ robot known as Ghaith, and GPS services can be used to locate public places.
