Activity 2: GIS and GIS-Applications
This activity is concerned with GIS-related services (such as digitisations, map
generation and map production, conceptualisation and generation of spatial geodatabases),
with the development of GIS applications and graphical user interfaces, as well
as with conducting GIS-based analyses and education in the field of GIS.
One of the main tasks within this field of activity is the development of
concepts and strategies fort he set up and implementation of spatial
geodatabases. In close co-operation with our clients we offer to develop
and implement database schemata that meet specific project requirements, to
maintain such databases and to further develop and adjust them to new emerging
needs. This service also includes support for data gathering, data purchase
or even digitisation processes, and data conversions between different formats,
utilising long year experience in such activities in the maintenance and development
of huge spatial databases (c.f. Activity 3).
A second important task within this field of activity is the development
of interfaces between ArcInfo/ArcGIS and transport models or other
simulation models. Such interfaces allow to facilitate the usage of network
data stored in GI systems within transport models or other models without the
need to store and update data in several incompatible data formats. This enable
the usage of the best capabilities of both worlds: to unlock editing and analysis
functionalities in GI systems while applying sophisticated transport and other
simulation models. An overview on the developed interfaces so far is provided
We very much would like to assist you in the development of new or in the adjustment
of existing interfaces.
Closely related to the development of interfaces is also the development of
specific up-to-date graphical user interfaces (GUI) which serve
the needs of the clients. Such interfaces are needed to edit the geodata or
for the export of geodata to other formats.
RRG is also offering services and support in the field of cartographic works,
i.e. in the generation of high-quality digital maps and print outs for all common
formats (A4 to A0). We offer a full spectrum of services, starting with the
collection or generation of necessary base data, the development and implementation
of the map layouts, the storage, conversion and application of different data
formats, and ranging to the generation and copying of the print outs. The existing
RRG GIS Database can also be utilised
to provide required data input. (c.f. Activity
3), and of course client´s databases or data from other data provider
can be integrated as well.
Based on the full spectrum of the existing RRG GIS Datenbasis we can offer
specific types of analysis, for instance the generation of isochrones maps,
or the calculation of specific interaction data or regional data, or the development
of specific GIS tools and GIS toolboxes.
Recently, the following projects have been conducted:
