The challenge

The web-based Geographical Information System WebLine and the optional mobile component WebLine mobile are offered as a service (software as a service, “SaaS”). The user can edit and visualise the spatial or factual data of his forest enterprise over the internet, print it or send this information via PDF document. With the mobile component, data can be retrieved from, edited and returned to geo-servers using a PDA with GPS and GSM while working in the field. Thus always the most current data are available on the server and can be used by other users.

The solution

INTEND Geoinformatik is hosted at ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Darmstadt, run by the German company cesah. This has provided the opportunity to consult ESA experts who have supported with technology insights and ideas to improve the system.

In addition, especially the support provided by cesah in relation to general business activities has been very helpful.
