A center of excellence in geo-spatial and environmental related issues, a source of expertise and experience, with emphasis upon deliberation and co-operation, in support of individuals and organizations, domestically and internationally.

Welcome to CKI

CKI is an institute that focuses on a wide variety of geo-informatics related issues. Such as, but not limited to:

  • urban/rural planning
  • water-management
  • flood disaster management
  • property valuation
  • flood modelling and;
  • environmental management.

CKI’s activities are project-focused with the objective of supporting decision-making at various institutional and government levels.

What we do?

In the past CKI was primarily focused on developing a range of geo-informatics software-applications. Currently most activities are consulting, organizing seminars and training activities, and capacity building for various institutions in multiple countries around the world. These activities are mainly focused on water-management and spatial (rural/urban) planning in an integrated context at a decentralized decision-making level.

Why choose us?

CKI has a wealth of international experience, knowledge regarding water-management, urban/rural planning, flood-disaster management, property valuation and environmental management and combines this in an integrated context. CKI utilizes a conceptual approach when developing software, consulting governments and institutions and/or organizing training and seminar sessions. When organizing seminars, CKI taps its network to bring together experts in their related fields in order to have the most valuable learning experience regarding the subject matter.

The vision of Compuplan Knowledge Institute is:
“A center of excellence in geo-spatial and environmental related issues, a source of expertise and experience, with emphasis upon deliberation and co-operation, in support of individuals and organizations, at home and abroad”.

Compuplan Knowledge Institute will function as an institute of applied geo-informatics, performing a high quality contribution to governmental decision-making in favor of a durable, balanced, safe and healthy human habitat:

  • By identifying and studying geo-spatial problems, decision making, and solution directions
  • By modeling geo-spatial problems for decision support purposes in combination with software system development for simulation purposes
  • By establishing co-operative and mediating relations with concerned decision-making institutions
  • By supporting public awareness raising and capacity building staff of involved decision-making institutions
  • By publishing the findings and outcomes, as well as recommendations, of executed studies and applications of software systems, through available communication channels, such as journals, newspapers, internet, lectures and presentations.

Core activities:

  • urban-rural planning
  • flood-prevention management
  • (disaster management
  • property valuation
  • geography
  • geology
  • cartography
  • cultural heritage

Core attention areas:

  • spatial planning
  • property valuation
  • cadastral and large-scale basis card information processing
  • solid waste collection logistics
  • identification and registration of dangerous substances
  • disaster suppression and disaster management
  • environmental management

Conceptual approach:

  • training and seminars
  • (specific) software development
  • supporting and applied research
  • comprehensive and integrated approach
  • application of software and guidance

CKI’s activities are strongly project-focused with the aim to support operational decision making at various policy and governmental levels. As much as possible, each of the software related activities of the foundation are “project-focused”.

Compuplan has been founded in 1984 and is registered as a foundation at the chamber of commerce, number 41082398. The foundation is non-profit based, and is active both at home and abroad, especially in developing countries.

The foundation has been established based upon the Dutch (interim) Law on Universities Reform 1970 (“Wet Universitaire Bestuurshervorming”) and the Dutch Law on Scientific Education 1984 (“Wet Wetenschappelijk Onderwijs”).

In 2008, the Dutch government acknowledged Compuplan officially as a Knowledge Institute and as such registered by the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
