Network information system (NIS) / topical GIS


Sewer networks

  • Interactive visualization of existing networks
  • Planning of sewer networks in new development areas
  • Creating models of sewer networks graphically and via data import
  • Operation and management of sewer network components
  • Creation of topical plans, both as digital and print-ready versions
  • Analysis & visualization of simulation results
  • Export / general connectivity / databases
  • Collection system’s management, operation, and maintenance (CMOM)
  • System Evaluation and Capacity Assurance Plan (SECAP)

++SYSTEMS provides stand-alone network information system (NIS) or topical geographic information system (GIS) functionality: no third-party software is required at any point. This holds true for both, a graphical front-end and a database-type-backend: both are included in ++SYSTEMS! Never fret over interface or version update problems ever again! Don’t be afraid of an “island solution”, though: of course, extensive connectivity with databases and other data-exchange formats is included as well.

Models of sewer networks can be intuitively created by manual graphical input facilities as well as via import of data using a multitude of common formats. Once created, digital sewer system models can not only be used to visualize existing networks, but also to analyze, visualize and optimize planning alternatives for new development or rehabilitation areas.

Additionally, the NIS part of ++SYSTEMS serves as a management tool, enabling utilities and operators to keep and manage geospatially referenced data for sewer network components.

Also, visualization, analysis and processing of network topology data in combination with simulation results into distributable and visually appealing topical plans, both digital and print-ready, can be easily performed with ++SYSTEMS. After all, an important part of any urban improvement strategy is presenting it to administrators, elected officials, decision- and policy-makers and other stakeholders: ++SYSTEMS gives you all the tools needed to do so convincingly!

++SYSTEMS is the result of decades of experience and engaged research and development in close interaction of developers and end-users from science, utilities and engineering consultants. The NIS / topical GIS component of ++SYSTEMS is proof of that: many tedious operational procedures required by rules and regulations established in the field of urban drainage are fully automated and work at the press of a button.


Surface flow

  • Creation and management of digital terrain models (DTM)
  • Direct import of remote sensing data such as aerial laser scan data
  • Intuitive integration of breaking edges (e.g. houses, sidewalks, etc.)
  • Registration and management of surface-use and land-use data

++SYSTEMS allows engineers to model sets of various catchment elements up to detailed models of whole watersheds. Remote sensing data, such as aerial laser scanning data, can be imported, processed and used for 2D surface modeling. Furthermore, information on inhabitants, surface properties, drainage conditions etc. can be stored and managed for individual parcels of land.

Properties of parcels of land, as well as DTM’s can be graphically manipulated and visualized in a multitude of often customizable ways.


Flowing bodies of water

  • Representation and management of natural and man-made flowing bodies of water
  • Cross sectional stream, river, and rivulet profiles can be assigned to stretches of watercourse
  • Multiple visualization methods possible

Courses, profiles, and various other properties of natural and man-made flowing bodies of water can be imported, edited and managed in ++SYSTEMS, as well as various properties of river banks and floodplains.
