For an oil pipeline operator, pipeline monitoring accounts for a significant portion of their operations costs. Their pipeline network stretches for hundreds of kilometers through hard-to-reach areas that are often inaccessible to terrestrial vehicles. For a long time, the only available way to monitor the pipelines was with foot patrols and helicopters. These monitoring processes, however, were not comprehensive enough, as many sections of the pipeline were still located in swampy and wooded areas and could not be inspected.
Irregular monitoring meant that accidents were frequent on the line, causing big environmental and economic damage. The oil transport company was looking for a partner who could help them improve their monitoring process using the latest technology.

Project objective was to design a new data collection process so a leading map maker can provide the most up-to-date maps to their users and stay ahead of competition.
The digital map provider can remain a leader in the industry only if their maps remain accurate and up-to-date. To collect accurate information, the map provider typically collects geo data from geotagged videos that are collected by field teams using specialized vehicles with video cameras. The field teams regularly visit assigned areas to record changes and update the client’s maps accordingly. Changes, however, can occur more often than the regularly scheduled field trips. Yet, these changes need to be reflected in client’s maps as soon as possible, or they will begin losing users. To ensure changes are recorded as quickly as possible, the client asked Intetics to come up with an alternative solution to gathering and verifying geodata.
In creating a specialized GIS of the flooded Ukrainian territories on the QGIS platform, it was necessary to shift the existing process from processing data using paper questionnaires to GIS processing.
Project objective was to help a cadaster agency update interactive land use maps for better land resources administration and management.
The client was dissatisfied with existing land use maps, but did not have the geo-expertise to improve the maps internally. They wanted to update the information contained in the interactive land distribution maps that are frequently used by farmers and land owners to monitor land use coverage. The client was looking for a partner to revise existing data and find latest land use and land cover data of a specific area without onsite investigation. They needed a partner able to analyze remote sensing data and satellite images, organize data, and map the results.
The main government organ in charge of road construction and management in Ukraine wanted to create efficient aerial view maps to help them manage important regional roads. They did not have the capacity to develop these maps internally and were looking for a partner capable of creating highly detailed orthophoto-based maps and integrating them with CAD (Computer-Aided Design) systems. Specifically, they wanted a photogrammetry team to process high resolution aerial photo images obtained from an external source, organize spatial data, and perform stereophotogrammetry mapping (piecing multiple aerial view images together). The goal was to create high quality and highly detailed ortho-based maps (scale 1:500) that covered a 25 sq km area and documented features normally found on topographic maps, such as vegetation, water ways, roads, and other man-made and natural features.
Project objective was to develop and integrate a plugin that requests WMS imagery tiles for selected territories for one of the largest cartographical companies in Ukraine.
As part of participation in a tender, Ukraine’s largest map maker had to perform a pilot project that involved creation of electronic maps. The client needed to act quickly to show new potential customers the effectiveness of their work. While they were satisfied with the software they were using, there was some room for improvement.
The client’s existing web application didn’t include functionality that would allow its users to create custom map orders. The client wanted to improve their application with a modern web mapping tool based on open source technologies. Several functionalities needed to be included: display base cartographic layers and satellite images, display thematic layers of nomenclature grids, and search by address and name of nomenclature grid. Cost was a factor, as the client wanted to keep costs down during system deployment. The new web application also needed to be adapted for mobile devices and have intuitive graphic user interface.
Land use agency decided to use drone-captured images to update their existing cadastral maps, because it is a cheap, precise and real-time data capture method. The map update was necessary for the agency to accurately define lot boundaries and manage land resources effectively. The agency, however, did not have the geo-expertise to process captured images or build topographical plans based on the derived data. They needed a partner who would be able to analyze the UAV images, organize and process data, and map the results. The task was further complicated by the fact that the data was captured by different types and models of UAVs and cameras, creating a myriad of data formats. The data captured was also frequently in violation of traditional survey techniques, requiring special attention.
Intetics was approached by a representative of a major construction company. The company constructs industrial facilities in several locations in different parts of the country. It is crucial for them to know of any site issues to successfully distribute their resources and ensure well developed, timely results.
A regional cemetery operator in France decided to implement GIS-enabled CMS and get rid of outdated paper maps. GIS-based applications allow most cemetery record operations to be performed by using a displayed map. Functions such as searching, selling and interment record keeping are all done through the map interface. The agency wanted to use these GIS technologies to simplify the cemetery monitoring process and decided to find a partner capable of creating an appropriate cartographic base for such a system.
Increasingly more mapping and geographical tasks can be solved with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), for example industrial survey and inspection, 3D modeling and land use management. While the use of UAVs significantly improves efficiency, the ever-increasing amount of collected data requires specialized infrastructure for data storage and maintenance.
