Conceptual design for a citywide GIS for the City of Baghdad, Iraq. The project was carried out as one component of the ""Baghdad 2001"" masterplan update conducted by a multinational team of consultants under the management of the Japanese Consortium of Consulting Firms (JCCF). The project involved an extensive user needs assessment, system design and implementation plan involving fifteen different agencies within the Amanat Al Assima (“Keeper of the City”) municipal government.
As Senior Consultant and Project Manager Mr. Sorensen was responsible for all phases of the project including leading a team of consultants in conducting user needs interviews with over 50 groups in fifteen different municipal departments. Interview information was synthesized to a conceptual system design, and a long term implementation plan was developed in consultation with municipal authorities.
