Developing GIS to Automate Printing Guide Maps for Bus Transporting Pilgrims During Hajj

Commission for Collaboration of Hajj Establishments 
A GIS based system was designed and developed to automate printing of maps to guide the buses transporting pilgrims. The system helps in preparation and printing maps that help in guiding bus drivers to easily identify the location of pilgrims’ accommodations in Makkah. The system provides searching capabilities for a particular location, by name or by the name of the street or by the name of nearby landmark. It also provides possibility of adding new locations to the Geodatabase. This solution has helped pilgrims’ transportation process during Hajj.
