Municipalities are organizations providing zoning services. To provide these services, they need access to both technical tools and tools for analyses. Following zoning services, base maps are prepared and approved, followed by cadastral and property structures being digitalized and zoning plan activities commencing. When zoning plan development phase is completed through a multi-dimensional process, it is necessary for old cadastral parcels to be arranged and new borders of properties to be determined according to the new texture of the city.
After that phase, installations for roads, rainwater, waste water, telecommunication, power, gas and the infrastructure are needed. Then construction licenses are granted and the next step is construction of buildings. Hence, the city is in the process of being settled. Maintenance, repair and modification operations continue in the life cycle of the system, once the settlement process is over.
Netcad has developed approximately 25 software products in order to provide solutions for all the phases mentioned above. All modules operate in an integrated manner. They make complicated engineering calculations possible and maintain the results in the geographical information system in order to use them later in maintenance and analysis stages. Through this structure, Netcad has integrated CAD and GIS concepts successfully.
