  • Cyprus, Paralimni – GIS Tool for Inventory Management of Assets and Infrastructures

    The software for municipal management can be considered as a series of applications (web portal, mobility application) built on a set of basic services that allow interaction with geographic databases (creating geographic layers and data). A pilot study that aims to facilitate the processing of this information, allowing the management of municipal resources and data by the technicians of the city of Paralimni. It has a 3 dimensional architecture of freely licensed components: a presentation layer for connecting to clients, an application layer with interoperable web services and a database.

  • Greece, Patras – GIS Tool for Planning Location

    This case study aims to discover the best area for building an athletic centre that combines a leisure area in the urban area of Patras. For locating the optimal area, the current DSS tool is expected to combine several existing GIS functions to support multiple different scenarios in a unified toolbox. It can define restrictive areas and subtract them, assign weights and costs to selected areas, estimate costs or evaluate each scenario and prepare report and thematic maps.

  • Jordan, Irbid – GIS Application for Waste Management

    This case study aims to develop a GIS-based waste management system which can produces a suitable framework, databases and specific tools that are required for managing waste data in Irbid Governorate. More specifically, this GIS model proposes different routes for the trucks that help to modify, control and manage the process of collecting the solid waste in three subareas. The current application is expected to be integrated into the municipality’s decision making process as part of an attempt to well manage the waste processes, from the collection to disposal end, by making more efficient use of existing resources.

  • Lebanon, Caza of Hermel – Land Evaluation and Land Use Management

    This case study for land evaluation of the Caza of Hermel is focused on geospatial information topography, geology, soil, land cover and land use. It was carried out by the Lebanese partners as part of an attempt to produce a land capability map as a suitable DSS monitoring tool. This study aims to identify, classify and layout the specific classes of the irrigable areas and to assess the historical urban expansion on arable lands in order to provide the Union of Municipalities of Hermel with a strong decision making tool for urban land management.

  • Malta, Zurrieq – Accessibility to Community Facilities

    The aim of this case study is to measure the accessibility of the various community facilities to the different age groups in the locality of Zurrieq. As the locality of Zurrieq is slowly growing in terms of population and development of residential areas, community facilities may become less accessible to that part of the population, who is residing in the residential areas on the outskirts of the locality. The Zurrieq case study will be made available to the Zurrieq Local Council, where it can serve as a boost for the use of geotechnologies in the decision making processes, at a local level of government.

  • Palestine, Jerusalem – GIS Application for Solid Waste Management

    The purpose of this case study is to promote the use of geospatial data in the management of solid waste. This case study will use the example of the Joint Service Council for the Management of Solid Waste-Jerusalem Suburbs, providing it with a way of making decisions within an organization where all information is held centrally and is related by its location. The achieved interventions will enable the council to possess effective institutional capabilities, raising it’s to perform its tasks of planning, oversight and guidance in the local service delivery sector.

  • Spain, Generalitat Valenciana – Improving the Local Governance Processes in Archaeology

    This case study aims at improving the local governance processes in archaeology. The proposed application uses 3D methods for monitoring and exploiting the heritage area including prevention, prediction and maintenance strategies in order to assess the impact of heritage conservation. Collected data can be analysed objectively and the information can be further used to predict scenarios.

  • Tunisia, Hammam-lif & Djoumine – Geospatial Analysis and Multi-Criteria Evaluation

    The purpose of this case study is to develop a geodatabase and a geospatial application, which is based on a methodology that ranks suitable sites for locating the optimal site for each action, in order to support decisions for Integrated Development Program. The study was initially designed for the delegation of Hammam-lif (Ben Arous Governorate) and was then extended to include Delegation of Djoumine (Bizerte Governorate).
