Project Goal

For several years now, geomatics has been a more common practice within GRDF's business lines. Historically, the
cartographer's job has been associated with network management, with regards to complex and proprietary technologies. Due
to the growth in mapping uses within GRDF, a dedicated team has been created to set up the technological foundations to
respond to these new uses:
- Enabling users to be autonomous in creating and publishing map data
- Setting up an application factory to create specific mapping applications: geomarketing, communication management in the
context of the energy transition, methanisation management, intervention management, etc.
- Making mapping data available by harmonizing it and making it accessible to as many people as possible: implementation of a
spatial data infrastructure.
- Every GIS skill within the same team: Geomatician, Data Analyst, GIS Technical Expert, GIS Developer, GIS Project Manager
