The Smart Way to Manage Your Infrastructure
GISGRO is an easy-to-use online data platform that allow asset operators to manage their infrastructure in a smart and efficient way. With GISGRO you own your infrastructure physically and digitally.
Developed by surveyors together with their clients.
Build a Digital Twin to Cloud to Connect Everything and Everyone Around the Asset.
Through access to better and more timely data on GISGRO, asset operators can improve the quality, value and safety of their infrastructure in a way that was never possible before.
By uploading, sharing and utilizing visual 3D infrastructure data on one shared online platform like GISGRO it is easy to monitor the condition of structures and plan for relevant and timely repair and maintenance. Through access to such an online digital twin, anyone can at any time and any place easily log and monitor repair work, maintenance, operations and other asset data.
“When we have all of our assets in GISGRO, enriched with additional data, we will be able to use it in every aspect of port operations from maintenance to sales. It does not only improve our communication internally and between different departments in the port, but also with customers and other stakeholders.”
Ville Kuitunen, Sales Manager | Port of HaminaKotka
”The overall view in GISGRO simplifies the planning and implementation of targeted maintenance actions. In GISGRO, we can compare the datasets so we can quickly and easily see if unexpected changes have occurred.”
Mats Ekman, Project Manager | Port of Stockholm
”We have the possibility to store and manage all survey data easily in GISGRO online-service, where we can independently access all survey data. This service lets us view, analyze and utilize the data for maintenance planning and budgeting in all phases of structures’ life-cycle.”
Jouni Hildén, Technical Planning Manager | Port of Turku
Key Features for Asset Operators
DIGITAL TWIN OF THE ASSET
View, share, and utilize georeferenced 3D asset data in one place, online. Compare data sets, follow progress, optimize operations.
CAD DATA IMPORTS
Import CAD data, such as IFC data models, and utilize it in asset design, planning, and management.
DATA BANK AND REMARKS
Attach additional data, such as photos, CAD drawings, and documents. Mark/import assets, repair needs, and comments.
COMMUNICATION IN ONE PLACE
Communicate with asset stakeholders directly through the platform, as an example, send work requests to maintenance.
Measure distances and depths, do volume calculations, make cross-sections, draw polylines and polycons, and more.
Integrate data from other databases, for example AIS-data to effectively plan vessel allocation in harbors.

Examples of GISGRO Tools for Asset Operators
SMART ASSET DATA MANAGEMENT
Add assets (buildings, railways etc.) to the digital twin and organize it with categories and tags. Further enrich the data with repair notes, comments, attachments and more.
HYDROGRAPHIC DEPTH TOOLS
Create depth charts, contours and soundings, and visualize target depth in map & 3D view.
Plan the allocation of vessels in cloud – remotely and at any time. It is possible to integrate the tool with AIS-data to make the planning more proactive.
Calculate volumes with few clicks only to optimize dredging operations, for example.
How to Make Better Decisions and Optimize Asset Operations by Online Asset Management
The life-cycle of a constructed facility can be hundreds of years, a lengthy period of time that contains different phases from planning to maintenance and finally decommissioning. The magnitude of information about the structure is almost unlimited, varying from design drawings and as-built survey data to maintenance procedures or inspection reports. There’s also a vast audience of stakeholders involved and the communication among them is crucial for efficient asset management.
There are many ways to manage all that information. The challenge is that most of the time, the information resides on different platforms. The architect has the drawings and maybe they are archived somewhere in paper format. The survey company has point clouds and in some drawer there is a flash drive containing the point cloud, but no one has managed to open it. The decision makers have never seen the damages the chief engineer is trying to address with the repair budget.
GISRO is an online 3D software that bundles 3D GIS visualizations and different procedures in asset life cycle management. It can be used as a databank, linking the 3D model of a structure in real coordinates with metadata such as inspection results, photographs, structural details or drawings. Take measurements for repair planning or make CAD drawings straight from the 3D data and send to the designer for extension planning. To demonstrate the state of the structure to stakeholders, you can easily show the visualized data in meetings via your web browser. Manage daily maintenance with work orders and access them in the field on a mobile device.
For successful asset management, information is the key to making good decisions. And because decision makers cannot be experts in every field, the information needs to be available, accurate and easy to digest. Facilitate the best possible decisions by getting the most from an abundance of information.
