GISGRO online port management platform helps ports overcome any barrier that blocks their passage to a safer and more efficient digital work environment.


Book Online Tour

Smart online data management solutions provide the clarity that ports need to work more effectively and efficiently.

Ports globally are using smart technologies to become more efficient, green and safe. The goods news is that these technologies are attainable for ports of all kinds.

GISGRO connects people and data within various functions in the port from operations to survey and asset management. It is a smart port management platform that empowers ports 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.

Key benefits for ports

Gathering data, such as bathymetric charts, asset information, and interactive maintenance and berthing plans, from different sources and across different functions of the port into a visual online platform enables the port team to utilize it effectively in everyday operations. Integrated with real-time information, such as weather and AIS data, GISGRO functions as a central hub for integral information across different functions and stakeholders of the port.

Accurate data and easy-to-use tools help the team to save time and make smarter decisions. 



With the easily available accurate data, such as weather, tidal information and AIS together with interactive berthing plan tool enables the port to accurately calculate the time of arrival and optimal UKC for the vessels. This allows the vessels to optimize their speed, avoid waiting time and optimize cargo, which saves the port resources, improves the service and is sustainable for the environment.



Accurate, easily available asset information and interactive maintenance management help ports to save time, cut costs, optimize predictive maintenance, and extend the asset life-cycle. Easy-to-use tools allow anyone in the team to utilize the data, for example to calculate volume, print bathymetric charts, mark maintenance needs or to quickly check the information of a rental asset.   



Easy visualization and sharing of 3D survey data helps the port surveyors to save time in delivering the data and observations to the port team. With GISGRO’s easy-to-use tools anyone in the port team can utilize the data, for example calculate volume, print bathymetric charts and make measurements digitally. Furthermore, a complete digital twin of the port can be built based on the survey data to optimize the port operations.

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

Examples of GISGRO tools for ports


Add assets (buildings, railways etc.) to the digital twin and organize them with map layers, categories and tags. Mark issues, send service requests and build preventative maintenance plans.



Upload hydrographic data into GISGRO and print bathymetric charts with few clicks only. Add contours, soundings, nautical labels and more.



Plan berthing in cloud – remotely and at any time to optimize the efficiency of vessel traffic. Integrate the tool with up-to-date asset data, weather and tidal information, AIS-data, and more.




Calculate volume and make measurements digitally. You can also easily visualize clearance depths in the map and 3D view.
