  1. 1. Technical & Sustainable Solutions Introduction Brochure March 2011 Technology for you and the environment
  2. 2. Technology for you and the environment INTRODUCTION Competitiveness might be defined as the set of factors that determine the level of productivity, and productivity sets the sustainable level of prosperity that can be achieved. Thus, more competitive means able to produce higher levels of income. Technological innovation is one of the 12 pilars of economic competitiveness. Moreover, the gains of the other pillars eventually seem to run into diminishing returns, and in the long term true gains will be achieved only with technological innovation (Porter M. and Scwab A., 2008) For many years mankind competitiveness has focused only in economic development without considering natural resources. But in 1972 the famous report entitled "The limits of growth" has great impact due to its dramatic conclusion that for a closed system like the earth is impossible to experience exponential growth without collapsing. The conceptTSS Solutions for: of sustainable development means extracting resources preserving a rich environment able to supply the required resources without sacrificing future generations (Colombo U., Hydraulic 2001) GIS & Surveying Therefore, in order to take a good desicion, is important to analyze all the possible Cloud & Cluster Computing alternatives and analyze its impact in economy, society and environment. Numerical Home & Office models are vital tool for such task, as they allow us to understand and explain natural phenomenas TECHNICAL & USTAINABLE SOLUTIONS Technical & Sustainable Solutions (TSS) is a new engineering services provider focused in applying the advantages provided by computers and new technologies in order to get solutions and improvements for a sustainable development of our society. OUR SERVICES We offer to our clients not only different software and computer tools, but also technical support. We offer the best and most renowned Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software applied to engineering areas such as hydraulic, hydrology, GIS and surveying. Moreover, offer the possibility to combine such software with new technologies in order to maximize benefits.

  4. 4. GIS & SurveyingGeographic Information System (GIS) is anyinformation system that integrates, stores,edits, analyzes, shares, and displaysgeographic information forinformingdecision making.GIS technology can be applied to almostany human related activity. Althoughoriginally was used to support scientific ARCGISresearch, nowaday it is applied to manyfields including economics or marketing ArcGIS is a system for people who rely on accurate geographic information to make decisions. It facilitates collaboration and lets you easily author data, maps, globes, and models on the desktop and serve them out for use on a desktop, in a browser, or in theServices field, depending on the needs of your organization.We provide you assistance in finding the SAGA-GISright tool for your needs, but also in any SAGAs first objective is to give (geo-)scientists an effective but easy learnable platform forproblem you might have. We also provide the implementation of geoscientific methods. This is achieved by SAGAs uniquescripts according to your needs that will Application Programming Interface (API). The second is to make these methods accessibleimprove your results, and save lot of time. in a user friendly way, what is first of all done by its Graphical User Interface (GUI). Together this results in SAGAs true strength: a fast growing set of geoscientifc methods ready to be used in numerous applications.Courses and webinars Online GISWe organize free webinars on differenttopics, and we can arrange special This model developed by DHI is synonymous with top quality river modelling coveringwebinars about specific topic under your more application areas than any other river modelling package.request. Web data aquisition tools Topographic data is the basis for any study or project related with earth surface. The most common way to obtain sch data is to perform in situ surveying. Nebverheless, this is a very expensive and time consuming task. There were many satellite missions like GTOPO30, ETOPO5 or SRTM that provides data of different resolutions. Such data have already proved to have great potential for many applications. However, user needs to search all data providers, and procces such data. Weve already gone through that task of searching and finding ways to proccess such data, so we are able to save lot of time and effort by providing you with data according your needs, or linking to the best alternative according your needs. As an example, you can try our free application Any Longitudinal Profile (ALP), which automatically links you to a google applications. Other example is our newest product Earth Cross Section RAS (ECSR), where you give the coordinates and it automatically creates the cross section in a given HEC-RAS project. For obtaining the profile according to your coordinates. Technology for you and the environment
  5. 5.
