Tecnobit is a software company based in Italy, in a town called Bassano del Grappa – Vicenza, situated in the Venice Region. Tecnobit was founded in the early 90s and develops software for the AEC market: Engineers, Architects and Land Surveyors.
Our applications cover the main fields of these Professionals: Structural Calculations; Energy and Acoustic Building Performance; Topography; Construction Management.
Tecnobit has a staff of 40 people which is divided into 5 departments (Software Development, Technical Support, Customers Care, Sales and Administration) and has more than 40.000 users in Italy.
In 2012 Tecnobit decided to grow and expand its business at an international level and CorrMap is one of the projects that the company has developed for such goal.
CorrMap is the brainchild of Gianni Rossi, who is responsible for the topographical software at Tecnobit. He had the idea to develop CorrMap in 2008 when an Italian technical standard introduced the availability of Cadastral Maps as raster image files, i.e. the old paper maps were scanned and transformed into raster files.
Gianni immediately understood that the availability of maps as raster image files was a great step for professional users who need to obtain geometrical information from them (coordinates, distances, etc.).
He realized that the advantage for the users was not limited simply to avoid the manual inspection of the original paper map, but the big jump was the capability to correct the deformation of the maps themselves, thus obtaining real and precise geometrical data.
This is why the software is called CorrMap, because it rectifies (corrects) deformed maps.
Since 2008 Gianni (photo 1) held more than 150 seminars at the local Surveyors Associations all around Italy (Photo 2) , teaching the right techniques to geo-reference and rectify raster maps.
Thanks to this intense experience, Gianni was committed by the Italian National Surveyors Association (Consiglio Nazionale Geometri) to hold the lesson “Georeferencing of Cadastral Maps” on the following courses:
In May 2012 Gianni was also awarded a membership "ad honorem" of the “Collegio dei Geometri di Padova”, the Surveyor Association in Padua – Venice Region.
In 2010 Gianni published a book on the subject of Boundary Disputes in which he explains all the algorithms adopted by CorrMap and, due the success of this first book, he’s currently writing the second edition.
