The collaboration platform consists of a link between an MS SharePoint platform on which, among other things, file information is stored and a GIS platform on which spatial information is gathered. For the creation of this collaboration platform GeoSolutions’ GIS expertise was combined with SharePoint expertise from another company within Cronos (Ventigrate). The best of both worlds was used and seamlessly integrated with each other.
In the GIS platform, spatial information about land is completed with structurally and uniformly stored related data (attributes). Integration with the SharePoint platform is very useful here. After all, land can be linked to certain project, while projects usually also have a spatial component. At a glance you can see (and look up) what is being done by De Vlaamse Waterweg in a certain region: files, projects, land, etcetera.
