ARGOS: Integral GIS for the Management of EIEL

ARGOS, a Geographic Information System used in infrastructure surveys, was born out of 13 years of experience in the sector. Its main objective is to meet the needs of principle actors in the sector (councils, technicians, draftsmen, etc.) while complying with the demands of the Ministry of Territorial Administration. In its essence, it aims to be a leader in technological innovation and responsible sustainibility.

Some characteristics of ARGOS are:

  • Integration of all the graphic and alphanumeric data into a single system.
  • Use the 2011 EIEL data model.
  • Compliance with all requirements set by the Ministry of Territorial Administration (including table creation and validation)
  • Optimized application reduces the task of data update and survey validation by 50%.
  • Integration of basic AutocadMap2011 software, improving usability and the delineation and system editing tools.
  • 100% compatibility with ESRI software as it exports in “Shapefile” format. It is possible use any application that uses “shp” files.
  • Single module runs the process of digitizing, editing and validation. Setbacks and advances are avoided by using different modules and programs.
  • Alphanumeric information recorded directly to the database tables.
  • Tools for automatic data dump.
  • Connection of services published in WMS format, through geographic coordinates, to other public bodies such as Land Registry and PNOA orthophotos.
  • Its own map layer; this avoids the process of linking to vector files.
  • Limiting the introduced information to fit within the Ministry model, reducing validation time.
  • After loading the information into the system, the tables required by the Ministry of Territorial Administration can be generated at any time. The information is continuously updated.
  • The geographic data can be continuously visualized; the municipal files and provincial maps have disappeared, avoiding continuity errors.
  • Services superimposed directly onto the elements themselves, eliminating the need to use complex relationships in alphanumeric tables.
  • Recognition of municipalities with more than 50.000 inhabitants for separation according to the MPT tables.
  • Automatic coding of the order codes for main elements and equipment (collection, waterworks, storage, water treatment, discharge, collection and treatment plants), avoiding duplicates.
  • Recognition of geographical coordinates to encode elements.
  • Improving the export of tables by identifying neighbouring provinces that provide services.
