Urban development planners in The Netherlands
have to conform to rigid standards. This holds true
even for the technical exchange of planning data.
CROtec specializes in the production of urban
planning maps that conform to the required ISO
standards. The firm is currently using Bentley software to service the hosting of its planning data on
the Web, which has improved the quality of the
presentation and reduced the time it takes to transfer data to the Internet.
The company uses Geo Web Publisher for hosting
MicroStation data on the Internet. In comparison
to the formerly used Web server software, Geo
Web Publisher saves hours for each Internet
update and is a major improvement in interactivi-ty with users, who can add comments and redline
information on the Web site. Postings are directly
sent to the proper CROtec employee. The interac-tivity has greatly improved workflow and enables
project managers to review their projects at any
time from any location. ;

overview of all the activities near its pipelines. It
not only helps the company to comply with the
