A blueprint for success: A digital twin of your port
Building a digital twin is the first step we take with every port. Whether the port has a large and diverse data bank or is completely new to asset and infrastructure mapping, we’ll analyse all considerations and guide each port through the process via a personalised implementation plan. Once constructed, you can easily upgrade your digital twin to a more comprehensive Port Management Information System (PMIS) by integrating new modules tailored to your port’s unique requirements.

What is a digital twin?
A digital twin is a georeferenced digital representation of your port´s infrastructure, assets, and operations. GISGRO is a central data hub that allows all stakeholders to manage, analyse and share information. Our easy-to-use platform ensures everyone can access the critical and accurate data needed to run a port smoothly.
For mapping port infrastructure
- Electricity cables
- Water pipelines
- Gas pipelines
- District heating network
- Transport routes
- Digital Elevation Maps
- Terrain Maps
- Electronic Navigational Charts Map
- Plot boundaries
- CCTV camera coverage
- Ecology and habitat maps
For mapping port assets
- Marine assets, bollards, fenders, quays etc.
- Health and safety related assets, fire extinguishers, defibrillators, life rings, etc.
- Buildings and facilities, warehouses, offices, workshops, etc.
- Vessels, cranes, vehicles, etc.
What makes digital twin so powerful?
You process visuals effectively
Digital twin is an effective way of processing information because everybody understands a map. By linking complex operations to a map, processes become more tangible, which improves comprehension, problem-solving, and performance.
You find information intuitively
With GISGRO, you are never more than a few clicks away from finding relevant information. Every information you record on GISGRO, like assets, notes, and tasks, can be found easily by clicking a “real-world” location on the digital twin.
You get a situational view
GISGRO optimises daily tasks by keeping all stakeholders informed. By making information more visible and accessible, you create a live situational view that ensures everybody is up-to-date. As your port changes daily, so does your digital twin.
Power of shared situational view
GISGRO is intuitive, visually clear, and provides a straightforward way for users to interact with complex data.
A GUIDE FOR SMART PORTS
How to build a digital twin?
This guide gives you insights into why digital twin is not just a buzzword but a practical way to improve your port’s efficiency, sustainability, and safety. We introduce the steps of building a digital twin and give concrete use cases of gaining the benefits of digitalisation in everyday work in a smart port.
- Create an accurate, georeferenced model of a port
- Add more information to the GIS data
- Integrate real-time information to the digital twin
When building a digital twin, results can be seen in just a few weeks and months.
The foundation of GISGRO is the digital twin
Our Digital Twin has been designed in collaboration with ports who needed a solution that presents real tangible benefits for daily users. Whether using the mobile or desktop, GISGRO has the tools to help leverage value in the daily work of a port, from supporting current operations to planning future developments.
- Bathymetric chart
- Under keel clearance
- Volumetric calculations
- Comparison charts
- Utilise ENC´s
- Measure distances
- Cross section
- Draw areas / circles
- Create polylines / polygons
- Free drawing
- Vertical wall analysis
- Railway traffic
- Air quality

Choose the modules to build your Smart Port
Our modules are like jigsaw pieces, allowing you to customise your port´s digital solution. The digital twin is the first piece of the puzzle. Modules can work independently, but when combined they seamlessly collaborate and enhance GISGRO´s value and functionality. Regardless of your port´s size and operational profile, our off-the-shelf modules have been designed to meet your requirements.
