Mobile geoinformation system

Mobile geoinformation system is a mapping app for mobile devices (smartphones, tablets), aimed for access, processing, analysis and graphical visualization of spatial data, allowing to work with information directly in-place. Mobile GIS is becoming more and more popular due to the widespread use of smartphones and tablets, they have a reasonably simple interface adapted for devices with small screens and a limited set of functions (in comparison to desktop GIS).
Mobile GIS is a part of integrated GIS-solutions and may be used by:

  • employees of the organization for collection, clarification and on-place use of information about objects, resources, performed works;
  • management of the organization and departments for visualization of various analytical information, quick and convenient access to the data necessary for making managing decisions.

Advantages of mobile GIS

  • Low cost, distributed between a large number of users. Instead of purchasing and installing desktop GIS for each user, the organization may operate within a single GIS environment that will be shared by many employees (such as mobile GIS of engineering communications or mobile GIS of a united territorial community).
  • Global coverage. A mobile GIS user may be anywhere in the world having access to information by means of his mobile device.
  • The convenience of usage. Desktop GIS is designed for professional users, experts in the field of digital mapping. Mobile GIS is intended for a wide audience, including non-experts. Mobile GIS is just as easy to use as a website: simple, intuitive and user-friendly interface.
  • Single upgrade mechanism. When working with mobile GIS, one upgrade works for all users.
  • Accessibility. Unlike desktop GIS, which may be used by a limited number of people, mobile GIS may be used by all employees of the organization as well as by the general public.
  • Cross-platform compatibility may be run on various operating systems: Windows, Android and IOS.
  • The possibility of group work. With traditional desktop GIS, only one user can work at a specific time, while mobile GIS allows tens and hundreds of users at the same time.

Usage of mobile GIS is aimed at solving problems

  • of field mapping – creation, editing and updating electronic maps and databases in the field on a real-time basis;
  • inventory of assets – the creation of property description and related attributive information (e.g. fire audit, planned inventory of engineering networks, etc.);
  • maintenance and inspection of assets – updating information on the location of assets, terms and schedule of their maintenance, repair (e.g. actualization of street lighting status in territorial communities);
  • incident reporting – documenting circumstances of incidents – road accidents, crimes (mobile app for police officers and emergency service workers);
  • spatial analysis and decision-making – measurement, buffering, geoprocessing and other field analysis.

Features of the mobile GIS

  • displaying a digital map as a set of layers;
  • navigating the map (zoom in, zoom out, transferring);
  • adding new and editing existing digital data (change of objects’ shape and information thereof);
  • adding raster data and base maps (satellite view, topographic map view, street maps);
  • connection to the display of new data sources (e.g. public cadastral map of Ukraine, digital topographic model, settlement site plan, etc.).

Cost and terms of the order

Calculation price for creating a mobile geoinformation system will be additionally agreed with the customer. The term of development will be up to 30 days from the moment of submitting materials necessary for the implementation and signing a cooperation agreement.
