Czech Railway Administration will use digital maps from Ness built on
Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division announced Ness Czech, a leading Czech system integrator and supplier of IT solutions and part of Ness Digital Engineering group, will supply the Czech Railway Administration with the Digital Technical Railway Map (DTRM), a railway-specific geographic information system (GIS) that will provide the state organization access to information about its transport and technical infrastructure to better and more efficiently prepare investments and repair work. The basis of the project is the Technical Map Information System (ISTEM), a unique solution developed by Ness and Hexagon.
The Railway Administration, as a railway operator, needs precise information about the railway network and surrounding area. By acquiring accurate and detailed geodetic measurements and digitizing asset and infrastructure information, the Railway Administration can meet its own needs and those of the state, which is developing the Digital Technical Map of the Czech Republic, a national map which should be operational in 2024.
The national map is being built across the country by connecting regional digital maps and others from the Railway Administration and the Directorate of Roads and Highways. The connection is provided by the Czech Land Surveying and Cadastral Office, which has extensive experience in successfully managing cadastral mapping.
The DTRM project is a complex system that includes a number of components, from the storage of primary data to the management of geospatial data to portal applications. All these processes are covered by the ISTEM system built on Hexagon technologies. Among other improvements, the system will ensure all changes are displayed to all users in real time.
