Summary of the project

Establishment of GIS and definition of GIS development concept, that will create the GIS network between public institutions, will significantly improve efficiency and effectiveness of the work of city administration and public institutions’ work by introduction of less time consuming procedures and decrease pressure on public servants at local institutions.

Implementation of an operational web –oriented GIS open to a certain level of external use will create permanent and centralize valuable databases and a system that will further serve to target groups as a cornerstone for planning, management, decision making and use of space and infrastructure. The project is designed to allow instant access to all interested parties through the Internet and Extranet network client-server architecture.

Introduction of GIS in the work of city services will allow more efficient and transparent service and increased participation in the affairs of common interest of the community to citizens and improved communications and exchange of information and simplified building permits procedures to investors.

 

All this will be achieved by procurement of necessary equipment and trainings for GIS system users.
