City Assets Base (BIG)
City Assets Base (BIG) is a unique information system in Croatia that enables recording, analysis and display of assets of local self-government units on geodetic bases. The system enables master data management, usage, cost and revenue data management for each asset unit, as well as fully user-defined reporting and analysis.
In this way, correct information on assets are available to public administration at all times. They can manage and direct their own resources to create new value and to improve their efficiency.
BIG is a web app developed in PHP. MySQL and Oracle databases are used. It is completely independent of platforms.
AJAX technology has been used due to its optimisation, robustness and performances. Reports are generated in PDF and Excel format and are platform- and software-independent. Therefore, it is possible to use them for distribution in a digital form, as a presentation or for publishing on websites.
In 2008 Meritum Soft d.o.o. started developing and constructing GIS system aimed at city administration workers, who are the end users in terms of the access, analysis and maintaining current data on facilities and facilities layout plans. This is a stand-alone system that is using an existing platform and is communicating to already developed systems of other administrative departments of the city.
The system is also available as a public service for citizens, without a possibility to connect to city assets data.
The system is based on a modern GIS technology with a database that will be developed by collecting and processing of their own data, external official data (State Geodetic Administration (SGA), Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Economy…), specially prepared existing external data (digital ortophoto, Croatian Basic Map (HOK), cadastral plan, topographic map) and public utility companies data related to their infrastructure.
