Abstract
This research was done to determine the feasibility of creating a fully functional Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in Ras al Khaimah (RAK) and its implementation strategy and process constrains. The purpose of strategic planning is to create a framework within which the complexity and interdependency of GIS design and implementation can be managed. RAK GIS Project (RAKGIS) is intended not only to serve all departments of the local government, but will embrace the needs of a variety of external agencies, other levels of government, and the private sector. The Emirate has identified and plan to utilized GIS technology as a means for improving its business processes, infrastructure, services, information and decision-making. The processes used in this research project can be divided into three distinct phases: strategy formulation, current situation assessment, and the tactical planning.
