Geometa solves problems

Visualize

Get a clearer picture of how your actions and decisions affect your residents. Geometa integrates & normalizes diverse data, turning it into beautiful visualizations on maps and actionable insights. Store, view, interpret, enrich data to make spatially aware decisions.

Real-World Example

In order to make construction process more transparent, we provide the map of construction objects, which displays information about buildings, their location and statuses such as construction has not started, positive dynamics, and needs attention.

Analyze

Drive your city development using Bigdata, ML and AI. Geometa provides data intelligence and essential analytics for economic development, urban planning, transportation, public safety, and customer service. Be consistent in your decision-making and increase transparency, track and predict city development.

Real-World Example

Processing data on citizens mobility based on telecom data and demographic forecast data to improve the accuracy of urban zoning and infrastructure development. Place infrastructure objects exactly where people are most often and need them most.

Automate

Deliver digital public services. Geometa provides automation of business processes and electronic document management — with reference to maps, their objects and layers.

Real-World Example

More than 5000 urban land plans and building permits are automatically prepared by Geometa every day.

Collaborate

Collaborate across teams, departments, agencies using a shared language and single source of truth. With Geometa, data and records are easily shared among all stakeholders, paperwork is eliminated, and information flows efficiently. Transparent data keeps all parties aware of new developments, updates, and historical records in real-time.

Real-World Example

Connecting a building to facilities takes time and requires a long-lasting coordination of a variety of utility providers and departments. Geometa reviews all restrictions and automates the coordination process. This is how the facilities were connected in 15 days instead of projected 3 months and with 1000% improvement in network damage reports.

Build Trust

Provide up-to-date citizen-oriented online service through geoportal, investment portal and mobile applications. Engage with residents to improve transparency and trust in government.

Real-World Example

Public urban planning portal, where citizens can see the conditions and restrictions on the use of land in the city, as well as decisions made on the construction and reconstruction of facilities at the expense of taxpayers. Based on this data, users build their investment plans and can reasonably evaluate investments in real estate.

Measure Performance

Centralize and standardize data to accurately measure your programs and the impact of your outreach. Report on your performance.

Real-World Example

Activities planned for implementation in budget programs (roads and utilities networks reconstruction) should affect the quality of the environment assessment, the pace of housing construction, tax rates and economic activity. Localization on the map allows you to correlate the implemented and planned activities with the real city economy.

«Agile developers and Strong support team

In fulfillment of the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area, on the basis of the Geometa platform, a state information system for urban planning (The System) has been implemented since December 2019.

 

 

The following functions are implemented in the System:

  • providing automation in terms of preparing documents for the provision of state and municipal services in electronic form;
  • automation of the System, including the processes associated with the formation and processing of spatial data when maintaining the System.

 

Today, in the region, with the help of the System, the task of converting state and municipal services into electronic form has been solved (the provision of services in paper form is excluded). The System provides automatic placement, storage, search, provision of documents on urban planning, and information about them. The System increases the productivity of a specialist and reduces the likelihood of technical error.

 

One of the most difficult stages of implementation is the task of training people how to work with the new system. The developers of the Geometa platform (Gems development) organized the work of the technical support service providing consultations. Technical support specialists patiently explain how to work with the system’s functionality.

 

While working on the System, users send proposals for improving the System, which are promptly accepted and implemented by the developers. Analysts of the Geometa platform quickly react to changes in the legislation of the Russian Federation and provide the system with the appropriate tool.

 

We wish the developers to keep improving the system, taking into account the further development of the urban planning industry, economic challenges, and the introduction of new technologies!»

«Responsiveness and hard work of the team

In 2019, on the basis of the Geometa platform, the state information system for urban planning of the Krasnoyarsk Territory (hereinafter – the System) was implemented. The developer of the System is Gems Development.

 

 

The Krasnoyarsk Territory includes 61 municipalities, geographically located in 11 zones of local coordinate systems. 8 territories are located in several coordinate systems at once. This circumstance creates additional difficulties for the implementation of a unified system.

 

To their credit, the developers of Gems Development solved all problems arising during the implementation process quickly and efficiently. The responsiveness and hard work of the team made it possible to achieve positive results in the shortest possible time. Especially, it is necessary to note the work of Alexander Reshetov (Gems Development) – the head of the development project of the System of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, as a responsible and highly qualified specialist.

 

Since December 2019, the System of the Krasnoyarsk Territory has been constantly developing, improving, and adapting to new goals and objectives.

 

The intuitive interface of the platform, a simple and understandable process of providing services is what the local authorities need and the system can provide it 100%. For specialists exercising control over urban planning, a module for quality control of the provision of services has been implemented. The most important achievement is integration with other state information systems.

 

Since in the foreseeable future an even greater amount of work is to be done in order for the System of the Krasnoyarsk Territory to provide users with the opportunity to establish interdepartmental information exchange of data with federal information resources, reduce the time required for the preparation and issuance of permits, translate urban planning documentation into a vector form, we sincerely hope for long-term fruitful cooperation with Gems Development company.»

«Why was I so excited by Geometa?

My acquaintance with the Gems Development team and its Geometa product began when I met Alexey Dudarev (CEO at Gems Development) at a time when … when there were neither Gems Development nor Geometa yet. But there was the Institute of Territorial Planning “Grad” with the information and analytical system for managing the development of the territory. Over the years, I can not reproduce the name of the system accurately, but this does not change the essence of the fact that I liked the structure of the system, the approach to its development, functionality. At that time, we had already operated another information system, but doubts arose. And it was all in 2013.

 

Since then, I closely watched the development of the system, and in 2018 a turning point came when it began to outgrow the old system and it was decided to migrate to Geometa by Gems Development. Collectively and thanks to the efforts of the team, the migration from the old system went quite smoothly.

 

Why was I so excited by Geometa? In short, the internal organization of the data, the approach of configuring and the ability to create new types of system objects in-house, the ability to download large amounts of data, the lack of necessity to install any client applications on the workstations of users and, for those who lack the built-in functionality of the map, the ability to connect to the storage of spatial data with third-party GIS applications. 

 

Also, I would like to note the Sapphire module – a module of the analytical subsystem for spatial analysis of urban planning data. The essence of this module is the ability to form samples of both documents and spatial objects based on links between documents and spatial characteristics/relationships. This module has already helped us out many times in the preparation of various reports, the preparation of which manually would take much more time. And I also use this module to create prototypes of queries to the database, when I need something specific.

 

In general, I was favorably impressed by the system and I hope that over time it will be possible to include it in an increasing number of processes in our administration.»

«Fruitful cooperation with the Geometa development team

We have been working with the Geometa platform development team since 2013. On its basis, the «Information and Analytical System of Urban Development Management of the Territory of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk» (hereinafter referred to as System) was implemented.

 

The main tasks solved using the System:
• Organization of a bank of spatial data of the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk;
• Maintaining the State Information System for Urban Planning;
• Updating urban planning documentation;
• Automation and control of the provision of municipal services in the field of urban planning and land use.

 

The Geometa platform has evolved greatly over the years, which significantly affected the efficiency of our institutions. The main drivers for increasing efficiency were the following reasons:
• Due to the transition to the Web interface, it was possible to reduce the technical requirements for client workstations.
• Spatial data allowed the consolidation of many unrelated documents.
• Implemented fast and convenient cross-search of documents and spatial data.
• Subsystem «Change of territory planning documentation» significantly reduced the costs of maintaining the current state of the territory planning map.
• The popular open-source software GeoServer used in Geometa made it possible to provide access to the bank of spatial data from other municipal information systems.
• Deep integration with the Region Geographic Information System turned the System into a municipal segment of a two-level regional information system, which, in turn, had a positive effect on maintaining the State Information System for Urban Planning.

 

Over the entire period of operation with the platform, we have developed fruitful cooperation with the Geometa development team. We hope that it will remain so since our system has room for improvement.»
