The project is the first component of a larger planned GIS system.

Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions, Huntsville, Ala., announced that the Direccio General de Carreteres (DGC) in Barcelona, Spain, has selected Intergraph's GeoMedia technology as the platform for its new corporate GIS. Project implementation will be a joint venture between Intergraph Spain and SYSIGSA, a local engineering company, and a Team GeoMedia Registered Solutions Provider partner.

The DGC's corporate project is the first component of a larger planned GIS system within the Catalan Public Works Ministry and Land Planning. The Web-based and client/server-based GIS will assist DGC with road management mobility planning, security traffic assessment, pavement maintenance, and road network planning. The current project comes in four modules and is in development. The first module is scheduled for the beginning of 2002 with the remaining modules operational by year's end.

DGC's choice of GeoMedia technology supports the need for accurate data model definition following the GTF (Geo Transportation Format) and GDF (Geo Data Files) standard Transportation Models. Several GeoMedia products will be used, as well as Intergraph's Dynamo product for cartographic generalization and what-if analysis.
