Our Projects



Project: Geographical Information System (GIS)
Client: Sui Southern Gas Company Ltd, Karachi Pakistan.


Description

The project was to develop most modern Automated Mapping / Facilities Management & Geographical Information System for SSGC. The Scope of Work included complete digitization of existing maps of SSGC for Transmission and Distribution Networks which consisted of 2,780 Km of Transmission Pipelines and 22,000 Km of Distribution Pipelines in more than 40 cities in Sindh and Balochistan Provinces including cities of Karachi (pop. 16 M), Hyderabad and Quetta. The Drawings to be digitized were approx. 2,100 of different sizes and scales. All the digitization was coordinated by physical georeferencing using GPS. An integrated system was then created and AM/FM/GIS were developed for the intra-company usage. The scope also included development of International Standard policies and procedures for Scanning, Digitizing, Database operation and GIS works.

  • Detailed Land use and Socio-economic Surveys
  • Sector-wise information collection (Water Supply, Sewerage, Environment, Transportation, Housing etc.)
  • Master Planning




Project: K-IV Bulk Water Supply to Karachi
Client: Karachi Water & Sewerage Board

Description
To achieve the objectives of determining technical & economically feasible alternate route, an unprecedented exercise was undertaken to create a 3D base map & GIS of approximately 10,000 Sq. Km (from Kotri to Hub including entire Karachi district). Advanced GIS platforms was used to create this base map and animation including:

  • Satellite Imagery / Remote Sensing
  • Land ownership record of the whole area
  • Digital Elevation Modeling (DEM)
  • Geographical Information System (GIS) / Geodatabase
  • GPS & Total Station based Surveying
  • 3D Animations

In this project multiple satellite images (Landsat, Spot and QuickBird) were utilized; millions of topographic objects were digitized; their attributes were managed in a modeled Geo-database; and hundreds of quality cartographic products (maps) were produced through that Geo-database.

OCL has produced a detailed base map under a GIS system of the city by using high resolution QuickBird Image on 61 cm resolution and Topographic Surveys. These satellite imageries were also used for cadastral mapping and to map existing land use / land cover of Rawalpindi.


Project: Hyderabad District Action Plan under HDP
Client: District Government Hyderabad Pakistan

Description
