GIS Software Development
Geometria developed topoLogic 2.1 GIS software which is a vector
GIS system and function library with built-in digital terrain
modelling for Microsoft Windows and UNIX.
Map Data Conversion
Over 60 professionals convert maps with manual, semi-automatic
and automatic procedures including attributing, pre-processing
and plotting. All these processes undergo rigorous quality control
tests. Service includes customer specific technology development
and rulebase to exclude erroneous data already in the input phase.
References include the German Road network for car navigation
purposes, the National GIS Database of Hungary and the 1:10.000
topographic sheets of The Netherlands. Geometria has special expertise
in road database creation for car navigation purposes, facility
management for utilities, topographic and geographic map data
conversion and remote sensing editing.
Regarding to the application fields Geometria pays special discriminated
attention to the quality of its services. In the frame of an international
co-operation - the COPERNICUS project of the European Union -
Geometria is currently introducing the ISO 9000 quality assurance
standard. This effort is based on the successful Esprit Bootstrap

The HÁLIR, the Network Information System of the Budapest
Water Supply registers the water system (from the production wells
to the customers) of the capital and its outskirts on 1:4000 and
1:50 000 scale digital maps. Beyond the registration it also helps
modeling and designing pressure zones.
1:200 000 Scaled Digital Road Network of Austria
Geometria GIS Systems House Ltd. completed the digital road network
map of 6 states (Vorarlberg, Tirol, Karnten, Salzburg, Steyermark,
Oberösterreich) of Austria at the beginning of 1994. The
project which was performed on behalf of the AGIS Ges. m.b.H.
covered 80 of the area of the country.
Budapest District Heating Network Information System (HőTÉR)
- Customer: Budapest District Heating Company
The HőTÉR is the map-based technical registration
system of the Budapest District Heating Company being realised
in multi-user environment and client-server architecture. The
system registers the primary and secondary district heating network

Digitising and attributing of road network maps of Germany at
the scale of 1:25000 for using by on-board car navigation systems
European Geographic Technologies (EGT) develops and markets a
pan-European digital geographic database for a wide spectrum of
GIS based applications. Main application is the set-up of a vehicle
navigation system for commercial use. Geometria produces the database
by pre-processing, digitising and attributing data from 1: 25.000
scaled topographic maps.

Data providing by satellite-image classification for planning
a mobile telephone-system in Germany.
During this project Geometria had to distinguish some special
objects that could influence the function of a mobile telephone-system.
The precise places of these objects have special importance for
planning. During the process satellite-images were compared with
the topographical maps and the data for planning were updated.
