Corporate information webs
Development of corporate information webs for the intranet or the Internet, with specific user profiles. These webs can be technical or specific, to answer the needs of every Department, or they can be simpler, like digital urban guides, for the access of less technical users and for the public in general. The webs include maps visualization based on free or proprietary powerful map servers. These projects have been presented to many specialized courses, conferences and seminars organized by universities, by the Catalan Municipalities Federation, by Associations of Architects, or by software development firms.
Corporate Municiapl GISs
Corporate Municipal GISs include the systematization of the cadaster, the urban planning and zoning, the urban systems, the services, the networks, the administration limits, the city street nomenclature system, the urban furniture, etc., and they are all connected to databases and corporate computer systems. These projects have been presented to many specialized courses, conferences and seminars organized by universities, by the Catalan Municipalities Federation, by Associations of Architects, or by software development firms.
GIS construction systems
GIS construction systems include specific working methodologies, directly from CAD files (i.e., Autodesk Map, MicroStation, etc.), with free or proprietary map servers. These projects have been presented to many specialized courses, conferences and seminars.
Urban portals, like the Galicia Xunta and the Galicia Association of Architects portal with data about the Urban Planning and Zoning of the 300 municipalities of the Galicia Autonomous Region. The system allows navigating through the graphic documents of any municipality, and at the same time, it allows to query the urban planning regulations and to download the original maps. The project consists of directing a team of urban planning specialized architects who do the data capture work, and design of the work methodology which includes a specially designed system to scan any graphic or alphanumeric document, the maps manipulation (orientation, cropping, georeferentiation and legends generation), the construction of a base GIS to publish the data in the Internet, and the design of an application that allows to automatically publish a data set of more than 100,000 documents, through meta-data, the GIS and the scanning application information. This work was presented and was published in 2007 at the 7th Barcelona Geomatic Week, and in 2005 at the A Coruña XXII International Cartographic Conference, with the title: "Compiling, organizing, structuring and publishing in the Internet the Urban Planning of the whole Galicia Region".
Integral Municipal Maintenance Management Systems
Integral Municipal Maintenance Management Systems with GIS engine that allow to relate databases, graphic information of the urban furniture inventory elements, work reports, breakdown reports, various reports generation, programing of elements maintenance tasks, linked history queries of each element, graphic and alphanumeric data mining with the generation of periodic reports, etc. This system was presented and published in 2007 at the international GITA's Annual Conference 30 in San Antonio, Texas, with the title: "Challenges of an Integral Municipal Maintenance Management for Vic".
Urban Records management and processing systems
Development of Urban Records management and processing systems (and other Departments) for new constructions, urban law enforcement, city planning and management, contracting, construction works management, etc. The system not only makes easier to maintain all the information linked to the records and their "cycle of life", but also it automatically generates the official documentation associated to each processing, it can be linked to the corporate municipal database, to automatically update in this system the desired part of the records processing, and it allows the connection to the Corporate Municipal GIS of the City Hall to graphically manage and automatically georeference to the territory the records, adding to the system the geographic and spatial component.
Internet inquiry systems for management systems
Development of Internet inquiry systems for management systems, like the Urban Records management system in the Internet. The system allows to inquiry all the processing and technical reports associated to a record and even includes a graphical module for PDAs that allows the records’ management and graphical location in the same screen of the mobile device.
Development of specific applications to integrate and coordinate graphic and alphanumeric information, like the management, inquiry and exploitation system of the Consell Comarcal d'Osona Animal Waste Plan. In the previous example case, in addition, the system allows to manage the information of the farmers’ periodic declarations about ownership or rent land regime and cattle heads, it calculates and generates graphical and alphanumerical reports and assessments of nitrates production, absorption capacities of the different declared lands, duplicate declared lands, nitrates excess, and allows animal waste transfers to other farms, common plans, certified transporters or new technologies treatments. This project was published in 2002 in the "GeoSpatial Solutions" journal, volume 12 number 8.
Simulation and impact studies of road and railway traffic
Development of simulation and impact studies of road and railway traffic of conventional and high speed trains, for the Mediterranean Corridor, for the Sectorial Territorial Plans and for the revisions of Master Plans. The studies imply de development of dynamic systems of travelers' attraction and generation for the simulation, analysis, diagnosis, and sensitivity studies of alternatives and proposals comparison, with the obliged mobility census data load, or the development of dynamic systems for the trains schedule graphic design, etc. Some of these studies have been published in the "Perspectives Territorials" journal of the Department of Territorial Politics and Public Works of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
Collaborations with other development teams
Collaborations and members of design teams of protection or urban planning and design plans, like the Planning and Land Use Update of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona of the Department of Territorial Politics and Public Works of the Generalitat de Catalunya, or the Master Plan of Lleida 1995-2010, which awarded the Catalunya d’Urbanisme first prize by the Institute of Catalan Studies and the Catalan Society of Urban Planning in 1999 for three reasons: sustainability, public involvement and computing support, which we were responsible for.
Collaborations with institutions for the development of european projects
Collaborations with institutions and other firms for the development of european projects like the PROFIT.
Technical advice and quality control of projects and computer systems
Development and involvement in quality control projects, and advice in development projects and computer systems.
