Cemeteries

Basic (Geodetic) module

Creates and maintains basic spatial records and attribute descriptions of the cemetery. This module is an upgrade of a Desktop Viewer and therefore has all of the same functionalities as that module.

The cemetery is described with over 30 point, linear and polygon spatial layers. The description includes not only graves, but also records parking areas, paths, waste bins, benches, and even gardened areas.

When entering data, it is possible to predefine the values of particular attributes in each layer, and for each attribute for which this was possible, to create lists, that is, catalogues.

For attributes whose values are used in the quality control process, "locked" lists are initially created, that is, lists which cannot be altered.

The graphical editor is highly efficient. A series of specialized commands are embedded into it. One of them is a command for the simple drawing of rectangular grave structures, for example, aligned by one base and oriented at the same angle. The editor also includes a command for drawing flowerbeds which are automatically “etched” into the polygon of green spaces with which the actual area of green spaces is maintained.

The greatest value and functionality, which competitors’ solutions do not offer, consists of controls of completeness of attribute description and quality controls of logical data input. The controls point out to user all incorrect data entered, directing him toward all locations where faults must be resolved. The data input process cannot be completed, in other words, data cannot be stored on the server, before all detected faults/deficiencies have been corrected. There are more than 20 controls built into the system that function like a series of increasingly finer sieves that gradually filter out all deficiencies.

This is a basic and initial module which is required for the establishment of the technical information system of cemeteries. The rest of the modules rely on data created by the basic module and without it, they cannot function.

It should be noted that the module for linking the technical and business information systems, also connects the corresponding data for cemeteries. The Web Viewer can be installed at the cemetery as a navigator for visitors in order to locate graves and other parts and features of the cemetery.
