Why Was I So Excited by Geometa?

Article content

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.
