Basic (Geodetic) module
Creates and maintains basic spatial records and attribute descriptions of the waste disposal. This module is an upgrade of a Desktop Viewer and therefore has all of the same functionalities as that module.
The system is described with over 20 point, line or polygon spatial layers. The description takes into account not only containers but it is also possible to keep records on routes, vehicles, consumers (number of residents)….
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. It has a series of specialized embedded commands. One of them is a command for the complex drawing of routes that “empties” containers along the way.
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. There is no type of element where the functional correctness of the spatial position in relation to other parts of the system, is not controlled. 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 50 controls built into the system that function like a series of increasingly finer sieves that gradually filter out all deficiencies.
The module enables simultaneous changing of data by multiple users, but without the possibility that these changes overlap. The procedure is based on defining a polygon of interest, i.e. specifying an area in which the user wants to modify the data. The specified area is reserved for only one person. Direct attribute editing, i.e., attribute editing without having to define the area of interest is available as well. This of course applies only to that part of attribute description that is not essential for the control process.
In a separate part of the module, the user can, in advance, show and describe by attributes, all types of containers, vehicles, etc., so that the attribute description can later be reduced to only the choice of the appropriate type.
This is a basic and initial module which is required for the establishment of the technical information system of the waste disposal. The rest of the modules rely on data created by the basic module while working, and without it, they cannot function.
The Module for connection between the technical and business information systems applies also to the set of data for waste disposal. We should emphasize the possibility of connecting the Module for vehicle tracking and this module.
