Geographic information system

scroll down
A geographic information system (GIS) is an information system for organizing and displaying alphanumeric data with spatial references. This data is stored in special databases known as geodatabases. This georeferenced information can be used to produce all sorts of plans and maps.

GIS are used for geomatics applications which process and distribute geographical information. Representations are usually in two dimensions (2D, XY coordinates), but 3D rendering with elevation (Z) is also possible. Animations can also be generated through inclusion of the fourth dimension (4D) of time (t).

Codra has expertise in using and implementing various GIS solutions through a number of supervision (Geo SCADA) and hypervision projects.



ESRI is a key player in the geomatics market and the global leader in GIS software. Its ArcGIS suite is used all over the world by businesses and governments requiring a geographic component.


Luciad Maps

The GIS produced by Luciad is renowned for its robustness and performance. Codra has worked with this software in the area of air traffic control to help produce spatial analyses and air-traffic routes.




Quantum GIS, a GIS program published under a GPL license, is one of the official projects of the Open Source Geospatial (OSGeo) foundation. QGis runs under Linux, Unix, Mac OS X and Windows. It handles various vector- and raster-based formats and supports the features and formats of several databases.



OpenLayers is a “tile” solution for displaying geographic information on a map. This web-based FreeBSD solution is being constantly enhanced with new functions and features. We integrate this solution directly into our products and into tailor-made solutions implemented for our customers.
