More than ever before, organizations must carefully consider and plan for their geospatial needs. We are experts in developing practical solutions to our clients GIS requirements. Our flexible, fully integrated suite of services, are designed to assist with all aspects of GIS needs. Geosynthesis staff and its partners are experienced in the development of system architectures and have designed several systems that integrate geomatics technologies into business-oriented solutions. We use design processes that are based upon proven IT methodologies. These require system specifications to be based upon a detailed understanding of the required businesses processes. This approach helps ensure that system specifications meet the organizational objectives and are not just an implementation of the latest in geomatics and database technology.

Application Development
Geosynthesis successfully utilizes object-oriented technologies to implement customized applications for clients who require a specialized graphic user interface. Writing code in the most popular languages affords the client the opportunity to develop a completely independent software application or a set of specialized tools for the GIS project.

The information system consists of a web-based application with two basic sub-systems with an interactive communication and a common environment for the users. The first one handles the administration of the procedures for real estate (MIS – SQL Server 2005) and the second handles the spatial analysis of the properties. (GIS – Intergraph Geomedia Professional & Geomedia Web Map Professional).

HPREC - (Hellenic Public Real Estate Corporation)

HPREC was established in 1979 and works as a self financed, autonomous government organization. HPREC promotes its strategic policy through the following three main areas of activity:

• Management of All Public Estates (selling, letting, tenancies at will)

• Project Feasibility and Site Development

• Accommodating Ministries and Civil Service Departments

Geosynthesis developed a GIS system to support the management of HPREC’s properties. The system developed covers the following operational needs:

• Scanning of base and surveying maps related to properties

• Transformation of scanned maps to Geotiff format - Greek Geodetic System.

• Digitization of properties and surveying maps utilizing the Geotiff files.

• Linking of properties to an MIS application for handling non-spatial data (contracts, leasing, owners, tenants etc), and establishing bi-directional interoperability between the GIS & MIS systems.

• Develop a front-end web-GIS intranet application for displaying and managing properties’ spatial attributes.

• Build a query and reporting system for analysing spatial & attribute data

Software Involved:
• Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and IIS
• ESRI ArcGIS, ArcSDE & ArcIMS
• Oracle Database Engine & Forms on HPUX

 


EYDAP SA - Digitization of sewer system
Digitization of sewer system from maps provided by EYDAP S.A. (scale 1:500). The maps conained information regarding to urban plans (blocks, street names), location of pipes, position of hydraulic units (e.g. water valves, junction outlets) and hydraulic and construction information.


Development of Intelligent Traffic System combining of digital cartography, remote sensing and telecommunications
The objectives of the project were the development, the demonstration and the commercial utilisation of traffic monitoring and dynamic fleet management services, adapted to users’ demands in mobile devices (e.g. telephones, PDA).


Filoxenia 2004
Filoxenia '04 is the joint venture of the two major consortia that were officially appointed by the Athens 2004 Organizing Committee to manage the Private Homes Rental Programme during the Athens 2004 Olympic Games period. Participants in the joint venture are the real estate divisions of Greece's largest private banks, and leading travel agents and Olympic Games experts.
Geosynthesis provided the GIS component that was required in the following three distinct phases of the project:

1. The ‘property acquisition phase’ involving geocoding the location of each property, and the calculation of its distance from each of the Olympic Venues. Distance constituted critical information since it determined the rental value of the property. During this phase GIS was operational in a back-office environment.

2. The ‘property disposition phase’ involved the certified tourist agents that were located to several countries across the globe. Internet GIS enabled them to provide their prospective customers with a better understanding of the property’s location. 

3. The last phase involved the construction of a publicly accessible GIS enabled web site, where the prospective Olympic Games visitor was able to navigate through detailed maps of the Attica Region, including street network, points of interest, Olympic venue location, Public Transportation facilities, etc.

The project run up until October 2004, and it handled 15.000 properties.

Software Involved:
• Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and IIS
• Intergraph Geomedia Professional, Transportation Manager, Business Manager, Web Map Professional
• Microsoft SQL Server Database Engine


ENAE - Web site and communication system
Development of a web-site and an electronic communication system for ENAE’s members. The web-site constitutes of basic information about ENAE and its members as well as general cartographic data of Prefectural Administrations. A central sub-system is responsible for managing the documents between the Prefectural Administrations.


D.Ep.A.No.M. - (Public Enterprise for the Construction of Medical Units)
Attica is among one of the fastest growing regions in Greece. The population growth has created the demand for the construction of additional medical units. With the powerful ability of GIS in combining data and showing it on the map, Geosynthesis developed a database system using GIS to assist in site selection. The system was populated with administrative boundaries, demographic data from the last three censuses, population growth projections, urban planning regulations, land value indexes and with the current location of medical units, including the both the public and private sectors. The resulting system was a valuable tool for assisting DEpANoM to determine the most suitable locations for new development.
