Integrate Spatial Data in your business processes
2021-09-29, 14:30–15:00, Salta

Spatial information always brings added value to workflow processes of all kinds. Traditionally, applications for managing general information do not incorporate management functionalities for the associated spatial information, which is treated independently and, thus, not synchronised. This leads to lack of coordination and can cause management and decision-making processes to be delayed or not have the spatial information updated in real time.

This success case shows the development of a general interface for the integration of spatial information in the worflow of general purpose applications by establishing communication interfaces based on OGC protocols and Open Source tool capabilities, acording to the following workflow:

  • Workflow process identification and sending of information in JSON format.
  • Representation of the general purpose information using OGC protocols.
  • Editing of the spatial and alphanumeric file information via OGC protocols.
  • Consolidation of spatial information in the central processing repository.

In this way, by means of Open Source technologies, instantaneous updating of the spatial information associated with procedures is carried out in real time through the use of OGC protocols and Open Source technologies.

This success case proves how, through standard-based interfaces, the absolute integration of spatial data in a centralised repository is achieved and managed in the data production processes in an instantaneous way, resulting in a unified product that allows the processing and management of procedures with spatial information updated in real time.
