What is the common denominator between GIS and urbanization …?

Their common home is the high-tech company Kaliopa, which employs a wide range of engineers in the fields of geodesy, construction, urban planning and computer science.

Geographical information systems and urbanization are closely intertwined. By using GIS data, urban planners can better understand the city’s current needs and more easily address the planning and implementation itself. By processing geospatial data from satellite images, aerial photos and remote sensors, users get a detailed view of the land and infrastructure. With expanding population and city limits, the advantage of GIS is to collect large amounts of information needed to balance priorities and solve complex problems such as optimizing the location of new buildings and the like.

For this purpose, Slovenian municipalities, public institutions and companies join the Kaliopa company, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary. During this time, they expanded their activities several times, covering all of Slovenia, Croatia, Istria, and also courting Serbia and Macedonia. Today, Kaleuba has 20 employees in two offices in Ljubljana and Celje. The colorful company of professionals, programmers (front-end, back-end, data analytics, Android), surveyors, geographers, urban planners, architects and builders form a strong base of different skills that they offer to clients through the products and services described below.

20 years of Kaliopa

How were the main services developed?

Twenty years ago, Kaliuba asked himself the basic question of how to use the completely new Internet environment at the time to display electronic maps. The idea was followed by finding technical ways to implement the project and finding answers to a question like “what should these internet maps contain and who needs them”. The main target groups are found very quickly: all enterprises and state-owned enterprises that manage infrastructure. Capping the whole project with Web GIS or WEB GIS.

What is a GIS?

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system that creates, manages, analyzes, and maps all types of data. A GIS links the collected data to the map and combines location data with all kinds of metadata. This provides the basis for creating urban plans. GIS helps users understand geographical patterns and context. Benefits include better communication, effectiveness, governance and decision-making.

Kaliopa has prepared four online platforms for spatial data management: iKomunala, iObčina, iRegija and iSlovenija.

Do you want to find a plot of land and look at the condition of the surrounding land? Do you want to check the value of a particular property? Perhaps other data like plot slope, flood risk and the like? All this is provided by iMunicipal, where you can search, view and analyze spatial elements, as well as measure distances and areas of all kinds of information in space. Services are available to municipal administrations and the professional public as well as to citizens.

iKomunala includes the spatial information of municipalities, municipalities and state, which can only be accessed using the username and password of authorized persons. It is an internal system not open to the public and intended only for municipal infrastructure managers.

iRegion – A pool of joint ventures that can be spread across multiple municipalities. Planning, implementation and maintenance can be part of the iRegion platform. A good example of this are bike lanes and mountain trails.

iSlovenia is an online geographic information system – GIS, public and commercial spatial data of Slovenia, intended for commercial use.

The Department of Urban Planning in Kalyoba consists of a multidisciplinary team from the field of architecture (landscape), geodesy and construction. Municipal and municipal services rely on their professionally executed spatial schemes, space case presentations, urban plans, as well as the digitization of physical documents. You can also hire an urban planner who prepares site information or land use certificates for you. The main activity of the Urbanism department is the preparation of Municipal Spatial Plans (OPP), Municipal Spatial Plans (OPN) and Municipal Detailed Spatial Plans (OPPN).
