Digitizing railways: A long time collaboration between ProRail and CGI’s GIS team

Rob Udink, Geo-ICT Consultant and System Architect at CGI Netherlands,  will share an animated story on how we as CGI have developed a few important GIS applications for ProRail on collecting and sharing all geospatial data of ProRail both for internal clients, but more important for working together with construction companies and engineering experts. This goes even further into the European standard Rail information that ProRail needs to share abroad. At this moment Ben’s team has been working on the automation of using schematic (1D) representations of the rail infrastructure and applying these algorithms in other applications. Finally Ben will share the IMX format that CGI has made with ProRail to exchange Rail Geospatial data in a standardized way.
