New Horizons, New Opportunities with the GEODI
Geographic Boundary Identifier
When a lot of people see GEODI for the first time they perceive it as an application that
finds a few words from documents. You search for “Ankara” and you find it. Of course GEODI does this, but there is so much more. The Language Identifier for instance creates new information from the file. This information isn’t clearly stated. It reads the file and tell you whether the file and says this file is Turkish, this file is English, that file is Russian. Our job isn’t only documents.
For instance we find locations from photographs. Here the information is embedded in the image and we find it. We also read and display CAD and GIS files. But we couldn’t find anything geographical. We only looked at the file.
So, we can say the Geographic Boundaries Identifier is the missing link. It finds derivative information from CAD and GIS files, and this is very useful. Thanks to this a user with thousands of CAD and GIS files will be able to know where the location of any file is. Isn’t that are goal?
Who has this many CAD/GIS files?
There are thousands of CAD / GIS files in the hands of municipalities, public institutions, construction companies, energy companies, KGM, ASKI, İSKI, TCDD, TEİAŞ, DSİ, MTA, İLBANK and many other institutions.
The easy management of these files, the sharing of them with relevant stakeholders whenever necessary, and revisions have always been a difficult task. GEODI is very practical (totally automatic) and brings an immediate solution.
What Kind of Need Does GEODI Meet with the Geographical Boundary Identifier?
An institution that has a lot of PDFs starts to drown in them after a while. For this reason they invest in eBYS software and are interested in GEODI. Because GEODI makes it easier for them to find what they are looking for and to manage the content on hand.
Similarly, an institution with a large number of CAD documents in its possession start to drown after a while. The primary key to connecting documents with the region of interest! But how will the location link be? If there is no verbal connection, things are difficult.
For instance if a plan is made for Ankara, but the phrase “Ankara” does not pass in the file how will you find it?
GEODI answers this question with Geographic Boundary Identifier. The Geographical Boundary Identifier reads the relevant plan, calculates the outer boundaries of the plan and draws it on the map instead. Thus, when you approach Ankara on the map, you see the limit of this plan. You click and open the relevant plan. That is it!
A smart software like GEODI automatically handles another boring job. You issued mining licenses. License limits include CAD or GIS files. GEODI may create an automated Geographical Licensing Information System from these files. Electricity or Natural Gas Distribution Companies want or have a project.
There are hundreds of thousands of DWG or NCZ electricity or natural gas projects. They want to add these projects to the Geographic Information System. But their job is very difficult. This is because semi-structured DWG files need to be converted into full structural GIS files. This is labour-intensive work that takes time. But the agency needs this information both for the site and for control during manufacturing. A major dilemma!
GEODI automatically adds a layer to the Geographic Information System with the Borde Identifier to solve the job in a practical and sustainable way.
