Mohammad -alqarniThe city of Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia, is a city experiencing rapid and unprecedented growth. As a result of this growth, a number of urban problems have been compounded such as the rapid expansion, accompanied by a shortage of infrastructure especially in residential areas. The agencies concerned with residential infrastructure delivery are aiming to be more proactive in use of geospatial technology tools to support decision making and facilitate coordination with different authorities in the city to ensure expansion of the provision of services to meet the needs of a growing population and confirm that service delivery is taking place in a planned and sustainable manner. However, most of these efforts are typically limited to individual implementation rather than integrative with the various agencies, which is considered a basis for their success. The research seeks to explore critical issues that limit the successful use of geospatial technologies in planning for infrastructure delivery. It highlights the challenges that face the agencies concerned with delivery of those services in the adoption of these technologies as tools to support coordination and integration.
