ISIS is a Swiss-Hungarian GIS company. The main activities of ISIS are the system engineering: management, development, implementation; data acquisition: database design, building, digitising; consulting; research; education.
Geographical Information System Design
The geographical information systems manage objects (entities) and events of the world in spatial structure and reveal their qualities and connections.
System building methodology consists of the following principal stages:
Some of viewpoint has to be emphasised regarding systems design:
Geographical Information System Development
The next important activity of ISIS is the system management, e.g. application software development, database building, digitising. ISIS offers GIS expertise on the PC and SUN workstation platform on the following GIS software platform:
|MapInfo for Windows||MapInfo for SUN|
|ARC/INFO for DOS||ARC/INFO for SUN|
We serve fast and reliable solution for the following problems:
An important activity of ISIS is the scientific research, especially the modeling (concerning air pollution, havarias), besides thematic mapping, multivariate statistical analysis, forecasts prediction for time-series, trend analysis.
GIS is the science of the 21st century. Information systems, particularly the geographical information systems based on the spatial structure analysis help scientific cognition to understand the complexity of the world but GIS requires integrated thinking. As it mentioned previously GIS can be applied in several topics, that's why we offer our GIS knowledge and experience as preparation of information strategy, system analysis (live and planned as well), spatial problem analysis, cost/benefit analysis and making feasibility study, market analysis of a planed system, concession information system especially in mining industry.
Regarding this enhanced interest of GIS several courses are available not only for "GIS novices" but educated people as well.

Review of ISIS' GIS projects
Municipal information system for Törökbálint
The aim of this project was to establish
The first step of this project was the preparation of definition study. It was made by the experts of the local government.
The second step was to work out the system plan prepared by two ISIS' experts such as Ms. Szilvia Szegedi and Dr. István Elek. Regarding the status of existing analogue cadastral maps new field surveying was needed made by Digicart Ltd. Field surveying works produced a precise digital map. ISIS converted this digital map to GIS database (in MapInfo and ARC/INFO format) which had correct topological structure. It serves good possibility for traditional alphanumeric database such as dBASE, Lotus, Excel, delimited ASCII, ORACLE, INGRESS to connect to the digital map.
The third step of system development is to survey utilities and convert data and match them to the existing system. Now it is scheduling.
The fourth step is to give courses on GIS, municipalities, usage
of the application and how to update data. These are also scheduling.
NATINFO, as a geographical information system for nature conservation
(Ministry for Environment and Regional Policy)
This project targets handling protected objects such as animals, plants, historic and etnograhic memorials in protected areas and national parks. This project started at 1992 and has been being scheduled.
Regarding PHARE that finances this project partly, the strategy plan was made by ISIS for PHARE office in 1993. The detailed system plan was also prepared by ISIS.
The system has three levels:
The outline level is finished. Topographic level is scheduling. The topographic level for Bükk National Park has finished. Cadastral level has not finished yet but there are two areas where this level is complete such as Káli-basin on Balaton Highland and Tihany protected area.
Soil information system for Hungary
This information system is the only soil information system that has every soil spot having correct topological structure. More than 4000 soil spots are included and every soil spot has 10 parameters. This system works in National Authority of Nature Conservation and AGROBER Ltd. The GIS database is available on ARC/INFO and MapInfo platform on PC and SUN machines.
Labour information system
In the Ministry of Labour Issues and National Labour Center two information systems were installed in order to handle the high unemployment rate in Hungary. The system contains unemployment data from all Hungary, from every local labour office (it is about 180 region).
Decision support system for state administration at Ministry
(on Duty Dept.)
This system was developed at the end of 1993. The purpose of this system is to handle data of settlements.
This system is based on the 1:200.000 map of Hungarian Military Cartography Institute. ISIS converted this digital map to topological correct form and matched alphanumeric data of every settlement. It means about 3200 data record and 400 data per record.
The databases consist of the following data groups:
Further database is included such as data about local governments, lord major and his telephone numbers, addresses.
This information system is based on this huge database that is updated quarterly years.
Insurance information system for OTP Garancia Biztosító Rt.
This system basically includes ten PC and MapInfo based work stations with several modules containing agent success factors, customer information, kinds of insurance construction and contracts. Consequently the system is a very powerful tool for risk analysis.
Geographical Information System for WESTEL 900 GSM Rt.
This information system handles electromagnetic field power all over Hungary to identify shadowed areas. The system can read field survey data from GPS (Global Positioning System) units along roads. Recently this database is about 0.5 GB. The applied GIS software is MapInfo.
Integrated Geographical Information System for Ministry for Environment and Regional Policy
This system is based on a MapInfo network all over Hungary. This system was installed for nine national parks, twelve local authorities for environment and six unit at the centre in Budapest. The information system includes nature conservation data, environmental and pollution data. Based on this system every local unit can use all database that ministry collects.
