Skills, technology and culture
For GIS solutions, we have developed DoGIS® toolkit feasible for setting up high-end GIS portals rapidly. This technology also makes systems from different GIS vendors “talk” to each other. Two-way integration between mainstream GIS and Auto Cad® has been added recently. Quick delivery of working prototype. In our project work we still rely on classic waterfall work model, when feasible, e.g. when project and specifications are detailed and refined. In practice however, we rely more and more on miscellaneous Agile Development methodologies. To our clients, this means quick delivery of working prototype so they gain a touch-and-feel experience and based on this, they are able to express their needs and requirements more precisely and in timely manner. This often proves more effective than classical project model and it also gives to our client better understanding of what they pay for, before it is too late to rethink.
R&D cooperation agreement with the European Space Agency
Extensive experience in developing map applications and spatial data analysis as well as visualisation in both Estonia and elsewhere in the world has been invaluable to Datel's team when developing innovative early warning system, Sille. Datel has an R&D cooperation agreement with the European Space Agency and in order to achieve highly reliable results, Datel cooperates with universities from several continents.
