We understand the importance of geographic data and information to the success of many industries. That's why we offer advanced geo-information solutions that enable our customers to effectively collect, manage, visualise and analyse geographic data.

What is GIS?

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are computer-based systems for managing, analysing and displaying geographic data and information. These systems combine location information with descriptive information, enabling complex analysis, modelling and visualisation of patterns and trends in the data in relation to their geographical context.

GIS is used in a wide range of applications including:

  • Urban and regional planning: For infrastructure planning, zoning and environmental management.
  • Environmental sciences: For the analysis of ecosystems, global warming, natural resources and natural disasters.
  • Logistics and Transportation: For optimising route planning, location analysis and traffic management.
  • Public safety: For disaster management, policing, firefighting and emergency planning.
  • Healthcare: For monitoring disease outbreaks, planning healthcare services and analysing health trends.
  • Agriculture: For soil analysis, crop monitoring and resource management.

A key aspect of GIS is its ability to overlay different layers of data based on geographic locations. This allows users to identify patterns and relationships that would not be apparent in traditional databases. GIS technology uses a variety of data sources, including satellite imagery, maps, survey and statistical data, to create detailed and accurate geographic analysis models. This ability to visualise and analyse complex spatial information makes GIS an indispensable tool in many fields, aiding decision making and policy making.


GIS in practice: case studies and success stories

We provide the advanced technology and expertise you need to make effective use of geospatial information. We understand the power of spatial data to gain insight, make decisions and solve complex problems.

Our GIS solutions enable businesses and organisations to visually analyse, interpret and present data to make better strategic decisions. Whether it's managing resources more efficiently, optimising planning processes or identifying new market opportunities, our customised GIS applications can help you realise your full potential.

Case study

GIP2.0 by RISE

The Geographic Information System of the Public Administration, the Graph Integration Platform (GIP) is a system used in Austria to collect, store, manage and analyse geographic data.

This data can include landscape information, infrastructure, environmental information and much more. The system enables the effective use and provision of spatial information, for example to support planning and decision-making in public administration.

Thanks to this platform, authorities and public institutions can use a common data standard for transport structures and no longer need parallel data repositories.

Case study

Road database by RISE

The Lower Austria Road Database is used for precise information archiving, management and analysis of the extensive road network in Lower Austria (NÖ), presented as a GIS dataset.

All recorded elements - from construction features and traffic signs to winter service routes, which are labelled as "events" - are geographically located and easily assigned to specific road sections. The official road graph, represented by the Graph Integration Platform (, serves as the basis.

The Lower Austrian road database also serves as a comprehensive integration platform and enables the seamless and efficient integration and processing of various internal and external specialised services with spatial reference.


Roads towards smart mobility

Our view of mobility goes far beyond the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) perspective - we also have extensive experience in various transport sectors, be it aviation, public transport or the automotive industry.
