  • NavLog GmbH, Germany

    • NavLog


    This project is the collaboration between the German forestry (DFWR) and timber (DFHR) industries. Their goal is the creation of a national sustainable truck routing dataset, and provision of logistics to support the value chain for forestry and timber industry. For NavLog GmbH, GeoMedia Smart Client supports 5,000 end users and enables the compilation, creation, management, and distribution of a set of digital, routable data covering the network of roads and forest tracks throughout Germany for NavLog GmbH. Efficiencies gained include minimizing the distance travelled in the forest and therefore reduction in the number of trucks running half-full. Overall, the solution allows for enhanced protection of environmentally sensitive zones and recreation areas. Furthermore, other industries and organizations also make use of this data, such as the energy supply sector, police, emergency services, and disaster management agencies.

     

  • GISquadrat, Austria

    • GISQuadrat


    GISquadrat has been using GeoMedia Smart Client to provide SaaS to municipalities in Austria for over 10 years. Today, the organization provides SaaS to over 450 municipalities supporting over 2,500 Intranet-user clients. Austrian municipalities are generally small, averaging 5,000 or less inhabitants on average. Since most don’t have the resources to provide their own GIS system, they choose to join together and rely on one computing center to serve them all. GISquadrat provides a cost-effective, complete web application to municipalities and provides GIS tools from simple address search to complex analysis on environmental data, zoning plans, aerial photographs, line cadastral data and more.

  • Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr GmbH (RNV) ‘GeoTrAMS’, Germany

    • Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr GmbH


    RNV is one of the largest public transportation organizations in Germany. The organization recognized the need to establish a complete infrastructure management solution organization, and to do so RNV selected Hexagon Geospatial’s Geospatial Transportation Asset Management System (GeoTrAMS). Using Hexagon Geospatial’s GeoMedia Smart Client and GeoMedia Transportation Manager, GeoTrAMS is one of the few web-based systems for tram and light-rail infrastructure to be built on a standard GIS platform. During the initial implementation stage, GeoTrAMS will be used in RNV’s infrastructure department, followed by incremental deployments that will build into a comprehensive information system for the organization. With GeoTrAMS, RNV can document its entire rail track system, as well as its switches, crossings, rail and movement joints, and manage all stopping points, including timetables, plates and signage. RNV also plans to integrate the GeoTrAMS video-logging into its infrastructure to retrieve visual information on the tracks’ surroundings for every position along its routes.

  • City of Linz, Austria

    • City-of-Linz


    GeoMedia Smart Client is used to coordinate project planning across internal departments of the utility company for the City of Linz. A foundational set of workflows were designed that enable the capture of geometric and attributive base information for projects. Now, project managers and organizers can make use of pre-defined searches for utility projects with the goal of understanding spatially coincident projects. In the background, the system automatically creates a list of other projects which are in the same area and the same time period as a target project. In this way, the different departments can coordinate and plan joint work for multiple projects in the same area. Additionally, detailed timelines for all planned projects, and also color-coded project plot layouts, may be printed using advanced printing functionality.
