Vricon tailors its Smart Foundation to create CitySuite, helping users with urban geospatial requirements

McLean, VA, July 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vricon is pleased to announce the launch of CitySuite, its newest 3D data product to meet the ever-changing demands of the geospatial market. CitySuite is derived from Vricon’s Globe in 3D, which offers users the entire world in highly accurate, immersive 3D at an affordable price. The company made the announcement at the Esri User Conference in San Diego, where conference attendees can experience CitySuite in the Vricon booth, #1931.

CitySuite is designed to meet the many and variable demands of 3D geospatial users who require accuracy at a city scale, but need reasonably priced options. Vricon 3D geodata is being used by emergency responders who want to reduce response times for urban residents. It also can be used by city planners who want to leapfrog aging infrastructures. Insurance companies use 3D imagery to analyze flood patterns, while transportation companies want to enhance efficiencies.

We provide data globally based on your areas of interest in a process that uses commercial satellite imagery and big-data analytics to create high-resolution, accurate 3D models without ground control points. Vricon 3D solutions power automated, detailed analysis at scale.

“All urban innovation—whether it involves small pilots or larger Smart City initiatives—requires smart data to plan for the best citizen experience,” says Magnus Brege, Vricon CEO. “Vricon CitySuite scales to our users’ needs, from citywide asset management to smart 3D mapping. But unlike other source options, CitySuite provides geospatial products that fit with state and local government budgets.”

Mandatory chambering for would-be Syarie lawyer

KUALA LUMPUR, Prospective syarie lawyers will undergo six-month of mandatory chambering if the Bill for the Syarie Legal Professional (Federal Territories) Bill 2019 is approved.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mujahid Yusof Rawa said that it was aimed at familiarising themselves with the substantive laws and procedures which must be complied with in the handling of a case.

”Chambering will help prospective lawyers who will be assisted by a senior syarie lawyer who has broad knowledge and experience in syariah laws,” he said when tabling the bill for second reading in Dewan Rakyat today.

The bill was aimed at proposing professional syarie lawyer’s practises, behaviour and code of conduct other than setting up the Syarie Legal Profession Qualifying Board, Syariah Lawyers’ Body and the Federal Territories Syarie Lawyers Council.

Commenting further, Mujahid said the Administration of Islamic Laws (Federal Territories) Act 1993 which was in use today was limited and did not cover all aspects pertaining to the administration and regulation of the syarie lawyers profession.

”For example, the methods of the syarie lawyers do not have provisions on the need to do chamberings,” he said.

During the debate session, Nor Azrina Surip (PH-Merbok) said that the bill would raise the professional standard and quality of syarie lawyers, because they are governed and regulated more professionally.

”I am confident one more history will be created with the approval of the bill as it will change the landscape of the Islamic justice system,” she said.

Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan (BN-Pontian) on his part suggested that the process of the syarie lawyer to become a civil lawyer be simplified because those with Bachelor degree in Syariah had formal basic education in civil legislation and the criminal code.

“What I want to raise is that it is quite easy for a civil lawyer to become a syarie lawyer, have a bachelor’s degree in law and then add a year in a Diploma in Sharia Law and Legal Practice, interview, and immediately can become a syarie lawyer.

“On the contrary, the Syarie lawyer is forced to do akin to a first degree again, add four years more despite having sat for a four-year sharia bachelor’s degree,” he said.

The sitting resumes on Monday .
