Smart online data management solutions provide the clarity that ports need to work more effectively and efficiently.
The fact is small- and medium-sized ports (SMP) are doing the same critical work that the world’s largest ports are doing. Their needs are practically the same. The good news is that smart technologies are attainable for SMPs as well. And simply put, they just make sense.
Especially when you consider that better information and new technologies are already empowering the world’s leading businesses every day. That’s what GISGRO does. It empowers SMPs by making their transition to a digital work environment easier, and by creating tailor-made, smart, and easy-to-use solutions that facilitate and optimize port operations and asset management – anything that makes your port run smoother.

What our customers say
”Our department produces and operates with a range of different types of data: multibeam and laser scans, orthoimages, and 3D reference models. For example, earlier we used to deliver underwater structural scan data to our in-house clients in 2D format. With GISGRO, we can assist them by enabling the easy access and utilization of different 2D and 3D data in asset management”
Thomas Thies, Head of Hydrographic Data Collection
Hamburg Port Authority
”GISGRO aids the asset management work tremendously; by seeing and analyzing the 3D data, the evaluation of the possible risks to the quays’ safety is easier and it is possible to do predictive maintenance instead of just reacting to incidents and repairing actual damages”
Jolien van Stokkem, Project Manager
Arcadis | Port of Moerdijk
“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
Key benefits for ports
EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE PORT OPERATIONS
Optimization of port calls demands accurate data. GISGRO combines the latest hydrographic charts, AIS-data, and port asset data with visual berth planning tool, making it plan vessel allocation online.
SMART ASSET MANAGEMENT AND PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE
When asset data is visualized on a map and in 3D in cloud, it is easy to quickly find the information needed. Use the digital twin to centralize and organize asset data effectively, plan maintenance, manage construction projects, and share the data easily with stakeholders.
SMOOTH COMMUNICATION BETWEEN STAKEHOLDERS
Easy-to-use and visual online platform ensures everyone has an access to an accurate data needed to run the port smoothly. With smart tools added, data can be easily utilized for smarter, greener and safer port operations. All in one place available anywhere and at any time.

Examples of GISGRO tools for ports
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.
