Generally, infrastructure refers to public and private utilities, facilities and supply systems such as roads, bridges, sewers and wastewater treatment plants, water lines, power lines, pipelines, and other facilities that ensure the functioning of a modern society.
Infrastructure agencies as well as private and public service providers in this sector, such as telecommunication providers, transport agencies, energy suppliers and water authorities are continually challenged by increasing demands for better and expanded infrastructure services, while at the same time being constrained by limited budgets for extension and maintenance. Consequently, there is a considerable demand for cost effective infrastructure management, maintenance and planning strategies based on precise information.
Based on its expertise in GIS technologies, spatial databases and high-quality geo-information, GAF is perfectly geared to meet this demand by providing thematic information and management information systems. The company‘s portfolio contains a number of highly competitive and fully operational services for the main GIS-based infrastructure management sectors. These support surveying activities, inventories, land cover and land use classi cations and other thematic mapping, as well as risk analysis and disaster management.
In order to allow infrastructure inventories to be carried out and to ensure strengthening of the relevant institutions, the establishment and integration of local knowledge and capacity is vital when implementing such GIS technology. Following creation and implementation of GIS systems and databases for planning and management purposes, GAF provides training and capacity building in order to allow all staff to own and make use of the new technologies.
