TatukGIS awarded contract by Port of Gdansk

November 02, 2000

TatukGIS was selected by the Port of Gdansk Authority Co. to provide a solution to intranet publish over LAN (local area network) a GIS photo map enabled database to address the Port's infrastructure management and documentation needs. TatukGIS will deliver a solution to intranet publish a GIS enabled data base application that had previously been developed by the Port using Map Info GIS software that ran only on single workstations. TatukGIS will take the application to the next logical step, which is to make the application available, on a simultaneous and interactive basis, to approximately 80 employees via the Port's existing LAN. The solution provided by TatukGIS must be reliable, scaleable to support growth, flexible to support additional GIS applications and functionality in the future, and sufficiently customized for ease of use to minimize employee-training costs. The final solution will be 100% based on TatukGIS' internal GIS software, which allows TatukGIS to price the solution very affordably. Because TatukGIS Internet Server fully supports other, industry leading GIS data formats, the Map Info format of the original GIS data is not an issue.

The historic, one-thousand-year-old, Port of Gdansk is the leading Polish seaport, encompassing 1,100 hectares of territory between the City of Gdansk and the Polish seacoast. A substantial portion of this territory is heavily industrialized, with hundreds of separate buildings and complexes, the principle duty free port zone in Poland, and the largest crude oil terminal in the Baltic Sea region. Several general cargo terminals and facilities handle the movement and storage of items such as grain, sugar, fruits, fertilizers, lumber, ore, and steel, and bulk machinery. Specialized cargo terminals include the liquid and dry bulk sulphur terminals, phosphate terminal, coal terminal, liquid fuel terminal, LPG terminal, syenite terminal, soda and salt handling terminal, banana handling terminal, international passenger ferry terminal, and container terminal. Other infrastructure located on the territory of the Port include railway links and rail stations, road network (including bridges), a malt processing factory, ship building facilities, ro-ro vessel servicing facilities, and an immense grain transit and storage terminal that is presently under construction by foreign investors.
