GeoMonday 2017.4 – Building Materials Logistics & Geographic Optimization

geocom_Logo_RGB The distribution of concrete is one of the most complex logistics management tasks. Ready-mix concrete has a very short shelf life of approx. 90 minutes and small and large order quantities must be delivered quickly, accurately and as cost-effectively as possible to geographically widely distributed and frequently-changing unloading points. Through the use of geo information, the various operational processes of the building material logistics can be optimized.

Babak Toloue Tehrani is responsible for transport and logistics projects and products at Geocom Deutschland GmbH. His main focus is on integrating geo-functionality into applications and processes for the logistics iBabak_Toloue_Tehranindustry. The customization of street data for routing and optimization tasks within ArcGIS based on specific use cases has been the focal point of his work in the past decade.

GeoMonday 2017.1 – The Full Exploitation of Open GI

ENERGIC_logoThe European project ENERGIC-OD (European Network for Redistributing Geospatial Information to user Communities – Open Data) address the heterogeneity of GI world and the lack of the single system which could satisfy the different user-requirements in world of geoinformation. The adopted approach is by utilising a brokering architecture and deploying a set of virtual hubs and a single point of access to geospatial datasets. This approach facilitates the development of multidisciplinary applications, based on full exploitation of open GI.

Studied Architecture and urban development, Frank Iden started as an Urban planner and Architect. Later he founded his own firm in 1992, SRP GmbH, where the Geographical Information Systems were developed for “Senate department for urban development and environment Berlin”. The interdisciplinary information system (Fachübergreifendes Informationssystem, FIS), the Geoportal of Berlin (FIS-Broker), and specialised procedures for city, landscape, environmental planning are among their products.
