VAMP enhanches safety for offshore operations by combining the structure’s geographical position with information on maritime traffic. In this way, it can alert ships considerd as a potential threat and notice the manager on board about the proximity (i.e.) of submarine pipings with an automatic message. Using the archive of the located ship’s positions, VAMP system can also assess the responsibilities for a suffered damage, by providing evidence of every boat that passed through the area in a determined time frame.
This is an extremely important tool for good maintenance and safety of offshore structures.
We believe that, thanks to the innovation brought by
VAMP, we will be having Market recognition, in addition to these important prizes.
November 14th, from 8:30 until 19:30, you’ll have the chance to meet experts, see demos and exchange ideas between a coffee and a snack.
But let’s first clarify: what is GISday?
GISday it’s a world reknown event, established to broadcast GIS (Geographic Information Systems). It engages with different Institutions, Firms, Universities and Schools, in order to show to millions of people the potential apllications connected to digital geography, in everyday life.
A GIS system is, infact, not only made by software technology, data and applicable solutions, but it especially represents the cultural heritage of the million of people working in the most disparate sectors – such as politics, education and business – that use these systems on a daily basis for their activities.
GISday is sponsored by National Geographic Society, by Association of American Geographers, by UCGIS (University Consortium for Geographic Information Science), by United States Geological Survey, by Library of Congress, and by many other leader businesses in the ICT sector such as Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and Esri.

FME World Tour 2018, the most comprehensive international event for the market’s leading geospatial data management platform, which integrates data from hundreds of sources to enable connectivity among different corporate applications, has come to an end.
The tour’s two Italian stops – Milan on 29 May and Naples on 31 May – were attended by professionals from all over the country. Engineers from Safe Software, the Canadian company that designed and developed the platform, illustrated the latest functionalities implemented on the system to automate and optimise corporate data migration and transcoding processes.
«FME is a solution that really can help companies, by making collection and migration of geographical and other data more efficient,» said Luca Raso, coordinator of the GeneGIS GI FME work group. «This is a platform we at GeneGIS GI are now very familiar with and use on a daily basis. The tour’s Italian stops generated a strong public response, demonstrating a high level of interest in the new features continually being introduced for the Safe Software solution.».
The full-time formula teaches the participants to use new tools and methods, and to integrate and process data, for the ultimate purpose of divulging the results of the project.
The partnership covers installation of roots, our logistics management system platform, on the vehicles that make deliveries for MARR. The installation includes the Planning, Monitoring and Cold-chain modules.
GeneGIS GI has also developed an App (“TC”) to enable MARR’s commercial engineers to check that goods deliveries are on time.
GeneGIS GI took part in the project, developing the cartographic dashboard for monitoring reported information.
The solution developed by GeneGIS GI is an innovative webGIS to be used to consult public health maps created through data collection.
The project began in November 2016. It investigates the correlations between atmospheric pollution, people’s social and behavioural characteristics and the development of respiratory diseases (such as asthma) and metabolic diseases like type-2 diabetes. The final stage will consist of the creation of “public health observatories” and the production of best-practice guidelines in the sample cities.
The objective of the analysis and monitoring activity is to transform public health from a reactive to a predictive system, enabling appropriate action to be taken to prevent the spread of pathologies. The processing of the data should also lead to the healthcare system becoming an inclusive collaborative system supporting public health.
In the five cities involved in the project (New York, Singapore, Barcelona, Paris and Birmingham), big data will be collected from a variety of sources: urban sensors, remote sensing, the devices of private citizens and IOT devices, free-access data obtained from healthcare systems and many more.
Innovative technologies of strategic importance for the entire public water management sector will be tested in the facilities serving the integrated water cycle managed by the CAP Group in towns in the province of Milan. The Blue Room of the Idroscale artificial lake in Segrate will house the physical base for joint research and innovation and the facility for developing modelling activities and operating tools.
The project will therefore be physically rolled across the province, covering 4 main activity areas:
WATER, with testing of the quality of water and optimisation of the distribution networks and waste water treatment processes. This activity also includes monitoring of emerging pollutants and atmospheric emissions.
SLUDGE, with the development and introduction of measure to reduce volumes produced during purification. Action will also be taken to convert sludge into heat and recover energy and raw materials from purification processes.
RECOVERY OF ENERGY AND RAW MATERIALS, comprising action to increase recovery of energy and raw materials inside the plant, upgrade biogas to biomethane and optimise anaerobic digestion operations.
SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC ACCEPTABILITY OF TECHNOLOGIES, through stakeholder engagement and advanced analysis of costs and tariffs.
GeneGIS GI will be involved in the development of a web platform integrated with GIS technologies to optimise display of processes and analysis and monitoring data from the various testing areas.
The platform is intended as a decision-support tool, but it will be enhanced with additional content and functions to assist the circulation of results and knowledge.
«We shall be involved in a two-year framework contract and join a small number of companies asked to provide their services for the operations of the NGO,» says GeneGIS GI CEO Giovanni Maria Casserà. «In addition to our professional satisfaction at having been chosen, we can’t hide our personal happiness at the opportunity to work with one of the most distinguished humanitarian organisations engaged in the fight against hunger, disease and poverty.».
ISO 9001, of which the 2015 version is the most recently codified release, is the benchmark standard for cyclical production process quality control. It begins from definition of customer requirements and involves monitoring of the entire production process.
«We are pleased that certification has been renewed and that our quality has been confirmed after the complex integration project that led to the creation of GeneGIS,» says GeneGIS GI CEO Giovanni Maria Casserà. «This is a positive indication that the company is becoming fully operational very quickly.».
Frontex is the European border and coast guard agency that controls and manages the European Union’s external borders, with responsibility for coordinating the pooled resources provided by the national authorities.
Geographical information systems (GIS) play an important role in Frontex. Activities such as planning, development and maintenance of GIS applications, supply of mapping services, processing of spatial data and relations with external geographical sources are considered essential for an agency tasked with control of the territory.
The GIS services that GeneGIS GI will be providing cover the design and integration of apps and software, development of spatial analysis tools, data management, advanced training of Frontex engineers.
After the excellent results of the forestry management project in Honduras, GeneGIS GI has confirmed its commercial focus on the area, providing consultancy for the development of the first national land registry geoportal for Columbia’s central government.
The new SINFI – the national federated infrastructure IT system created by the Italian Ministry for Economic Development – implements a new geographical and mapping format to collect service infrastructure data. To obtain ministry approval, local public service operators are required to transcode the data on the infrastructure they manage (pipes, power networks, fibre networks, etc.) to the new format.
“The merger of the four companies that form GeneGIS GI makes invaluable new skills available to our customers and enhances our tools and knowhow so that we can address the market more efficiently and competitively,” said the company’s technical director Massimo Galluzzi.
This year it has renewed its application management and data updating operating support services. New functions are also being developed for the geospatial resource management system, based on the G/Technology Fibre Optic Works application solution (Hexagon).
The software application developed in 2013 by GeneGIS GI (known at the time as GESP) manages data relating to the entire supply chain workflow: data of the contracted firms, technical characteristics of contracts and supplies, felling programs for the various plots, information on biomass felling, transportation and delivery operations.
The reporting module analyses expected biomass flows and compares them with actual deliveries to the power station. The software also automatically generates the data required for AGEA certification of biomass quantities.
RED aims to provide territorial management agencies with the information needed to conduct weighted predictive assessments on the type of mitigation action to take during checks and in an emergency.
Specifically, GeneGIS GI works with a helicopter transport company to conduct terrestrial surveys with laser scanners and oblique airborne photogrammetry.
The RED project will provide information and training courses for geologists, engineers and forestry specialists active in the Aosta Valley Region. The first 3-day “Summer School RED” ended on 7 July in Courmayeur with GeneGIS GI professionals acting as tutors.
“GeneGIS GI confirms its role as a key partner in territorial government and risk management,” said the company's business management director, Gianni Casserà. “We have built extensive experience in this sector through operations in many fields.”
“We are delighted with this result,” said GeneGIS GI president Stefano De Capitani. “It consolidates our expertise in the conservation and enhancement of cultural assets, an area where we have already been active on a number of fronts, in Italy and abroad. The knowledge that our contribution is helping to enhance Campania’s important cultural and religious heritage is another source of satisfaction.”
The aim of the task force, which was launched in June 2017, is to share knowledge about Android raw measurements and its use, including its significant potential for measurement with a high degree of accuracy.
