Editing system for rail track sections on the basis of a WEB GIS, Germany

Editing system for rail track sections on the basis of a WEB GIS, Germany
DB Netz is responsible for safe operation and for maintenance of the rail network of 34,000 km total length. This corporate objective can only be met if current information on the network and its facilities is made available. The aim is to replace the existing Excel-based reporting of changes to rail section attributes by the STREDA.X reporting tool, which applies a map-based, user-friendly editing process that is accessed via the Web with just a browser.
