Geographic information system

Geographic information system is an organized collection of computer hardware and software that is designed to efficiently create, manipulate and display all kinds of geographic or spatial data. GIS allows complex spatial activities that are otherwise impossible without information technology .

GIS is used to support decision-making that uses data about the territory to plan other activities related to the economy, environment and social welfare.

GIS is a multi purpose tool mostly used for spatial development, infrastructure planning, management, real estate, risk analysis, transportation and logistics ....

2007. GIS of Municipality Kovin

Project of introduction of GIS software in the Municipality of Kovin aims to enhance the capacity of municipalities Kovin to meet European Union standards on the issue of urban solutions. The project will replace analog methods used for spatial planning in Kovin with moder software and hardware alternative.

To achieve this goal it is necessary to increase the level of technological knowlage of municipal officials and the acquisition of appropriate information technology.

The project will enable the target group - employees in the Department for Spatial Planning to use GIS in everyday work. The project will bring innovation in the municipality of information technology and improve the overall quality work in the treatment of urban solutions. Modern methods of spatial development in the long run will bring positive changes in other areas of municipal development, particularly in regard to environmental protection and economic and social development.

The project will bring technological innovation in the municipality of information technology. The overall goal is improved quality of municipal officials serveces in the Municipal Service planning.

Modern spatial planning, as understood in the countries of the EU aims to achieve balanced and sustainable development of the territory. Organizers of spatial development are using techniques and methodologies based on modern information technology that enables them to contribute to economic and social development of less harmful impact on the environment.

2004. IS of Municipality Rakovica - Belgrade

Rakovica information system contains the following spartial and non-spartial data:

• Orthophoto 1:1000 scale maps
• Address system of the municipality - synchronized with video or image of every object in municipality
• Data of business entities
• Cadastrar Data
• Spatial database of utility infrastructure.
• Graphic database of illegally constructed buildings with graphic attachments for each object
 • Spatial database of road infrastructure of the municipality (GIS synchronized data and video)
• A digital model of the municipality: digital terrain model with a represented height of every object.
• Web service defined by the municipal information system

Project objectives :

- A unique data base of data
- A unique database of spatial data
- Standardization of data at district level
- Creatio a standard thematic maps
- Establishing a system of analysis of spatial data and non spartial data
- Faster resolution of ongoing activities (eg, Urban Planning)
- Faster and better services for citizens.
- The possibility of connecting to the wider (city) level
