GISGRO online platform is the easy way to manage physical asset operations digitally, in one place, in order to save time and ensure efficient usage of the assets. With GISGRO, all asset data is in one place, in a visual 3D format, where everyone can access it anytime. No special software or expertise needed.

For surveyors, GISGRO is a simple and cost-effective tool to save time in reporting and ensure their clients can see and utilize the survey data in their everyday operations. Upload the data to GISGRO, make observations directly to 3D data and share them with the clients by sending them an e-mail link. GISGRO also forms an automatic and visual pdf-report of the data and observations.

The best part is that the lifecycle of the data doesn’t stop there. In GISGRO, the surveyor and their clients can create depth charts, countours and soundings and do volume calculations with only few clicks. Furthermore, the client can continue using the data in GISGRO by adding their own information and comments to it, mark assets and repair needs, send work orders, and more. In one platform everyone can use.
