Geometa 5.27 is out!
Hello again, fellow GIS specialists and Geometa users! We’d like to thank you all for the feedback, the daring and unusual requests that made our tasks far from trivial. The simple fact that we are making the system better together makes us happy!
Main new functionalities in new 5.27 release since 5.23 are:
- New search criteria introduced in Garnet Construction Suitability Check. Use the checkbox to search only for vacant lots that have no construction going on.*
- Links can now be followed to other websites on the Interactive Urban Map right from the object record.
- System properties now include the information on the person who initiated data import to the system with Web and Desktop Importer.*
- Invalid geometry in the system can now be found out with the Query Builder. For that, just specify a condition in the SQL clause.*
New optional modules:
Urban Analytics module improves the efficiency of city infrastructure management with the following features:
- Car accidents map — perform analysis to reveal road segments with higher risks of accidents with this thematic map. Identify the areas where accidents are most concentrated for a certain time period, study the information on each accident. Main goal is to help outline a road safety solution and reduce fatalities. A specific part of the city can also be selected to study how the number of accidents has changed there over time.
- Private cars density map — calculate how many cars occupy certain areas and visualize it on the map, reveal residential areas with overcrowded parking lots.
- Number of residents — for a more accurate analysis and evaluation consider what input data you provide to the tool. A complete set of data would include a number of residents living in multi-apartment and individual residential houses, as well as the built-up area and number of floors.
- Availability of social facilities — analyze if enough households are provided with kindergartens and schools, as well as their overall accessibility on a city-wide scale. Simulate how the social inclusion of households changes if an educational facility was to be built nearby.
- Shared city photos — wondering what place in the city is the most popular? Our tool visualizes the attractiveness of an urban environment by analyzing the geolocation of city street photos taken and posted on social networks.
- Earthworks map — reveal which areas with utilities are most accident-prone by analyzing issued earthworks permits for these areas. Accidents are assigned to correct areas and visualized on the map for a period of time of your choice. Alternatively, you can get a list of all the ongoing earthworks and organizations responsible for them:
These new features of the Geometa platform are now available with updates:
- While keeping information records on private individuals, you can now maintain a multi-level hierarchy of departments and divisions. As a future advantage, this will allow you to retrieve data linked with only a certain department or division.
- The system got improved algorithms now for data processing during replication. Same metadata categories are no longer displayed twice in attribute view panels when applying filters. The search is now noticeably more convenient. When filtering by a specific metadata category, objects from both your current project and a replicated project are displayed.
- Update and clean installation of the system has become easier and more reliable. We have added a feature to manage Ansible configurations remotely. This allows you to automatically maintain the system and its individual modules.
- The system now supports Geoserver version 2.20.4.
Updates are available subject with software technical support. Optional modules are marked with *.
