Gdańsk is Poland’s principal seaport and the center of the country’s fourth-largest metropolitan area. The Development Office of Gdańsk
undertook this project to explore the feasibility of introducing a tram line in the historic district of central Gdańsk. The premise was that a
tram line would revitalize this part of the city by improving mobility for residents and attracting tourism.
A detailed 3D city model that covered both terrain and buildings aided in the analysis of how the tram line could be adapted to the existing
infrastructure, while minimizing the impact on historic areas. The model also illustrated new development that would accompany the tram
line. Bentley software enabled the translation of project assumptions into a 3D model.
The Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadastre (CUZK) operates the Informational System of Czech Real Estate (ISKN), a centralized
database of spatial and administrative information about every land parcel within the Czech Republic. The outdated ISKN data model did
not correspond to current spatial database standards. It took days to deliver information for a single cadastral area. CUZK needed to update
the data to current standards.
CUZK implemented Bentley Geospatial Server with an Oracle connector and DGN/XFM schema to automatically generate graphical data for
all 97 regional offices ( 13,099 cadastral areas). Three monthly analyses report the current status of data digitization for each cadastral area,
cadastral boundaries based on quality and origin of measurement, and spatial definitions of cadastral areas. These tools save an estimated
five man-days per month.
