Start to Manage Port’s Assets Easily Online

The daily asset management tasks in a seaport require using a bunch of different software. There are GIS applications, CAD software and various databases to handle the vast amounts of asset data. But why waste time in searching information from different databases, when you have an opportunity to combine the needed information into one map-based platform? In this article, we explain the first steps in starting port’s asset management in an online platform GISGRO.


Step 1. Upload the basic information of port’s area

There is plenty of spatial information about the port stored in different software or archives, for example boundaries of the port area. Uploading this geographical data to GISGRO (we use easy drag & drop uploading) enables you to start gathering the asset information to a visual, map-based environment, including a possibility to view the data also in 3D. Currently GISGRO supports .asc, .xyz, .csv, .txt, obj. and .las file formats.

Step 2. Add asset information needed in everyday operations

The exact location of bollards, railways or rental areas is important information used in everyday operations of a harbor. Whether you are planning the mooring of arriving vessel, checking available loading areas or confirming the location of fresh water supply, all information needed can be made available in one platform. Adding asset information is easy, just import them (for example in GeoJSON format) or right-click the mouse to add single assets. Organize the information further and manage the users’ access to data with categories and tags. See the video below for tips how to do it easily with GISGRO’s visual UI.


Step 3. Share the information easily

One benefit of online platform is that the information is available for everyone needed, anywhere and at anytime. Maintenance crew in the field, managers in the office or sales representative at the client’s facility, all can use the information simultaneously. Just invite the users to GISGRO via an email link and modify the user rights according to their task to share the asset information. The map-based view ensures that the information is easily found, no need to go through several different folders!
