About GIS

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics. What goes beyond a GIS is a spatial data infrastructure, a concept that has no such restrictive boundaries.

Top Services

Crime Analysis

GIS is a necessary tool for crime mapping in law enforcement agencies worldwide. Crime mapping is a key component of crime analysis. Satellite images can display important information about criminal activities. The efficiency and the speed of the GIS analysis will increase the capabilities of crime fighting.

SDI

Developing Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) in Ministry of Interior and Communication

Mechanized information systems are increasingly considered and used by ministries and institutes, due to features like speed, accuracy, ease, spread. Facing a large amount of spatial information and the necessity to share this information,  growing number of organizations inevitably need to introduce and investigate mechanized solutions for increasing efficiency of their data management systems and spatial information systems. Spatial data infrastructure (SDI) creates an interactive environment, increases cooperation and coordination between different organizations, decreases parallel works related to spatial data collection performed in different organizations and in this way it avoids human and financial resource waste. Nowadays, SDI has drawn attention of many countries and it is applicable in different local, urban, provincial, national, regional and global levels

collection

Implementing fleet management system, collecting and monitoring information

Expansion of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and widespread use of these systems in all organizations have revealed the importance and usage of these systems more than ever. So that many organizations have design systems befitting their needs to achieve their goals easily and quickly.

In this regard, a GIS based system must be designed according to a precise understanding of the organizational needs. To do so, a precise understanding of other systems’ side facilities is needed. Such an understanding interacting with GIS system can result in designing an efficient system with more side capabilities. Therefore, identifying possible links and capabilities which can be added to GIS is extremely important.

Decision Support

Transportation is one of the major features of economic and social development. Human need has been the most important motivation in transportation. Nowadays, states and political organizations cannot stabilize their existence without transportation and communication. Because, managing internal organization, publishing national principles and laws and moving military and security forces need a confident transportation and communication system. Throughout history, conquering new lands has always happened following the development of communicative routes. Routes, castles and military fortresses have been primarily built to access colonized countries easily and strengthen transportation necessary for preparing military troops requirements.

Therefore, logistic infrastructure play a crucial role in winning wars. Transportation infrastructure is one of these. These systems act as the logistic vital artery. Strategic logistic management must focus specifically on transportation networks

Land

Desiging and implementing spatial information system for Management of Property and Land

With the increasing power of computer hardware and software and their application in various fields, computer technology was quickly used for various applications of spatial information. Over past two decades, GIS has developed and grown rapidly. As a science and Technology and also a decision support system, it is essential for the effective use of resources and facilities.

Regarding the capabilities of the spatial information system in storing, retrieving, displaying and analyzing information and huge volume of location reference information, and the need for speed, precision and spatial and descriptive analysis in calculations and analysis, applying spatial information system (GIS) is essential.

Locating critical, vital and important sites (site selection) is one of the capabilities of spatial information system, which identifies the best location or high potential locations with appropriate conditions by integrating information layers and performing the necessary processes on the acquired information

Police Systems

Designing and implementing Police spatial information system

The primarily objective of spatial information system is to define and provide a framework for police activities which are performed with the aim of operating this system in various police headquarters. Given the objectives of police department in the areas of urban security, crime surveillance, and the protection of cities, as well as facilitating crisis management, this headquarter needs full knowledge of all its centers throughout the country. Therefore, possessing a system to manage and display spatial and descriptive information of these centers is very important and necessary
