The objective: to develop and implement reliable, public sources of information for Ukraine’s protected areas based on open source GIS solutions, helping the National Ecological Centre of Ukraine (NECU) maintain protected areas and decrease human impact on the environment.
The NECU, a major nongovernmental, non-profit ecological association in Ukraine partnered with Kyiv’s OSGeo Research and Education Lab at Taras Shevchenko National University to make information about nature conservation areas in Ukraine publicly accessible. The project was crowd-sourced and launched in 2014. Up to this point, the only source of public information and data about protected areas was in paper and raster data formats. The two organizations wanted to create a cadaster web application that would show the borders of Ukraine’s protected areas, but needed more GIS development expertise.
The municipality needed GIS_for_local_Government_ENa unified and effective system to better manage its multiple departments and services. The municipality wanted to create a system that would unify management of spatial data, synchronize department operations, and allow easy sharing among municipal personnel. Finally, they wanted the app to be publishable and viewable online so municipal residents could access the information. The end-user experience had to be intuitive and adaptable to the user’s software and hardware requirements.
The municipality needed a unified municipal system that would integrate GIS into its daily operations, such as planning and management of major city departments, establish standard format for municipal geospatial data and share geospatial data with the city’s other departments, agencies and citizens.
The municipality is one of the biggest government structures in the client’s country and includes 27 departments with over 15,000 employees that provide over 100 services for city residents. The municipality needed a new platform that would allow the departments to collaborate and work together in an effective way. The platform had to enable high performance, accuracy and security, without interruption, as mistakes and delays were time consuming and costly.
