Through the recommendation of Datascrip, one of SuperGeo’s resellers in Indonesia, the Directorate General of Highways purchased powerful desktop GIS software- SuperGIS Desktop 3 as well as fully functional mobile GIS software- SuperPad 3 to improve spatial data collection and management. Using SuperPad 3, the field surveyors at Directorate General of Highways is able to collect, measure, survey, and display field highway data effectively. The surveyors no longer need to bring lots of paper maps to the field; instead, with the handheld devices installed with SuperPad 3, users can complete the field tasks with the comprehensive GIS and GPS functions in the software. Data accuracy and work productivity can be increased.
The collected data can then be updated and further processed by the officials with SuperGIS Desktop 3. The users in Directorate General of Highways can easily display, visualize, manage, and analyze the GIS data in the powerful desktop GIS platform. Highway data can then be processed to better fit the user requests. The decision makers in the Ministry can therefore utilize the spatial information to assist the policy making process, aiming to improve traffic management and transportation development for Indonesia. Datascrip will continue the aggressive marketing in the local Indonesian market with SuperGeo team. In the coming Asia Geospatial Forum 2011 taking place in Jakarta, the 2 companies will together introduce SuperGIS technologies and applications for international visitors at Booth 25.
