A UNIFIED GEOINFORMATION SYSTEM ENSURED THE WORK OF THE CEMETERIES IN NOVOSIBIRSK, RUSSIA.
GIS «Ritual» created by Data East automates the execution of documents for burial, inventory of burials and site planning.
“The charts built on the basis of statistical indicators give a clear idea of the state of the cemetery and the availability of free sites for new burials and sub-burials”, says CityCloud – a website dedicated to the development of smart cities.
The developers guarantee maximum transparency of the structure, they promise to “make information about the burial and its location as accessible as possible”. At the same time, access rights are flexibly configured for different user groups. “Data available to one user group can be hidden from another”.
Such gloomy areas of work are rarely talked about in large technology forums, although for the company this is a clear success, and other systems are also providing digitalization of cemeteries. For example, ZuluGIS in Voronezh or GISMAK in Kostroma .
«Ritual» is not the most exotic product of Data East. They have also created the first free mobile application for the Novosibirsk zoo. Director of the zoo Rostislav Shilo described the project as follows:
“About 1.5 million people visit our zoo every year. Novosibirsk citizens and tourists from all over the world are attracted by the collection of rare animals in it. The development Data East helps our visitors to easily find those animals that they would like to see first”.
Director General of Data East Vyacheslav Ananyev explains the choice of this area of activity as an attempt to get away from a narrow professional understanding of geoinformation technologies, the need to make them as accessible as possible for specialists of any profession, to offer simple, intuitive software solutions and products.
The company participates in the development of the municipal portal “My Novosibirsk” and “Unified Cartographic System of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District”. But it is the geoinformation support of cemeteries and zoos that makes one wonder how many niches there are in Russia and in the world that are still not covered by the GIT.
