ENVI4ALL is a mobile application that offers information on current, forecast and historical air pollution levels, making use of open data on air quality and user-generated information.

It uses air pollution measurements for the calculation of the Air Quality Index (AQI): an index for reporting daily air quality based on the associated health effects people may experience from breathing polluted air. The forecasts provided by the app are produced by DRAXIS’ advanced forecasting algorithms and models Furthermore, users are able to state their feeling (perception) on air quality and see other people’s feelings. This information is used for estimating air pollution in areas where no open data are available, or for improving the accuracy of the information provided by open data. ENVI4ALL combines all this information to provide users with personalized alerts for poor air quality and practical advice in organizing their activities.

Digital Environmental Registry is an operational permitting tool developed for the Greek Ministry of Environment, Energy & Climate Change. DER optimizes the environmental permitting processes by transforming the current licensing status in a fully digital process and workflow-based platform. DER enables the electronic submission of environmental impact assessments via web interface, as well as the monitoring of the process in order to issue, amend or renew the decisions on environmental conditions in implementation of Greece’s Law 4014/2011.

The Digital Waste Registry enables online procedures for registration and verification in a database for companies (waste producers, transporters and waste recipients). DWR facilitates the users to fulfill their obligation of submitting an annual waste report about waste use, management and disposal so as to both hamper the uncontrolled waste distribution and help the Greek Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change to apply the waste management policy according to the Greece’s Law 4042 requirements.

DRAXIS environmental SA created the DRAXIS Smart City data management and utilization platform, with clear vision of providing innovative tools and services to citizens and organizations. The platform offers a complete solution for the collection, processing and analysis of data via geospatial intelligence and machine learning algorithms in order to produce new information and services that will elevate the municipality, the people and their potential.

DRAXIS Smart City offers a powerful collection of tools to the intelligent city of the future that tackles the energy crisis and climate change and enhances the daily lives of citizens. Using modern visualization tools, stake holding users can reveal information that is hidden among the variety of city data to assist on a) reduction of the operating costs in areas such as waste management, building and street lighting, energy, water and public transport, b) urban planning, c) tackling air pollution and climate change, and d) mobility and parking. Citizens can benefit in matters of daily life such as smart parking, traffic avoidance, remote services, equality in governance, better living conditions in the city and road safety.

The platform rises to the challenge of easily correlating and visualizing different forms of data from a variety of sources into a unified geospatial representation using cutting-edge technologies without the hassle of different communication protocols.

The DRAXIS solution can combine data from multiple sources (IoT, geospatial, satellite, open source and citizen data) of any format or data following common measurement standards.

The DRAXIS Smart City geospatial platform provides:

  • Interconnectivity: Ready-made connectors for direct connection to commercial or custom IoT devices as well as other data sources.

  • Data Augmentation: Constantly updated data sources to combine with user data.

  • Geospatial Analysis: Storage, preview, combination and analysis of geospatial information and satellite images using the implemented technologies.

  • Calculation Engine: Building a computational layer with innovative machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms for data augmentation and analysis.

  • Visualization: Build and manage maps, charts, dashboards, and workflows in a cartographic environment. Ability to compose dynamic dashboards for real time and non-real time data analysis.

  • Advanced Notification Functionalities: Set alarm thresholds based on combined values ​​of real-time variables.

  • Access Rights: Secure environment only for access to authorized parties that will perform configuration and monitoring actions, while also giving access to unregistered users (public).

  • Interoperability: Supports the secure sharing of device data or data generated by the platform, in other applications of the public body.

The platform’s implementation approach utilizes state of the art technology in data entry, storage and processing. Data flow and processing technologies such as Apache Kafka, Apache Spark Cluster, feed the data into the visualization and business logic layer, provided with full interconnection through OGC communication protocols, geospatial data and REST APIs.
