GIS Interface for graphic and Attribute Data

Data can be easily exchanged between Lovion and GIS using the module Lovion GEO CONNECT. The GIS data to be used can be comfortably selected in a menu. Furthermore, the export can be carried out and monitored parallel to other applications. It is also possible to transmit data in the opposite direction, meaning that data is edited in Lovion. These modifications can be transeferred to GIS. Lovion GEO CONNECT incorporates various types of GIS data:

  • Graphic data
  • Attribute data
  • Internal components
  • Topology
  • Schematic diagrams
  • Linked documents
  • Addresses
  • Land Parcels
  • Information for connecting SAP

Data Deployment

Deploying graphic and attribute data is usually done differentially. This means that all data is exported from GIS once. Thereafter, only deviating data is transferred and updated in Lovion. The data export can be carried out for single regions or the whole grid network.


Exported attribute data is subdivided into so-called repositories, for example, for gas, water and electricity. Different repositories can be exported independently (also parallel). The export of a single repository can also be carried out parallelized.


The configuration of Lovion GEO CONNECT is displayed in a tree structure. Configuration options include the repository, table, field, layer etc. All these elements are symbolised using icons. The meaning of icons is displayed in a legend. New elements are added using insert buttons. Modifications are carried out in special editors that can be accessed via a double click. Parts of the configuration (for example, individual layers or whole repositores) can be shifted or copied using copy-paste functions.

Saving the Configuration

The complete configuration is saved using an XML file structure in an individual dataset within the GIS database. The XML file can be exported or imported. Therefore, the whole configuration can also be sent via email or versioned in saved files. Configuration problems (for example, if a field to be exported doesn't exist in the GIS database) are displayed in the tree next to the affected element. As a result, problems can be identified and fixed easily. A special display mode is available for layers where corresponding attibutes are visualized in a table. This offers a good overview of selected attibutes for each feature class within GIS.
