ORTWIN is a program for the country-wide inquiry of the cities and towns, localities, postal codes and dialing codes in Germany. It finds postal zip codes, dialing codes, coordinates and ground level elevations. The program determines municipal codes, local center points, car license codes, topographic maps, Unlocodes and much more. It arranges localities hierarchically into the structures federal state, administrative district, rural district, town, municipality, local quarter and domicile. The program performs perimeter searches and distance calculations. It finds landscapes on different levels, natural units and climatic data like snow- and wind load zones and solar irradiations of all localities.
A program for the research of the German cities, municipalities and urban districts with postal codes, telephone codes and coordinates
In a radius around a localitie or around a postal code area covered localities and postal areas can be clearly represented by a comfortable perimeter search. They can also be arranged in a list, stored as a file and printed.
For the local inquiries and perimeter searches a data base with more than 125.000 geocoded localities is available. The program represents local data, determined by local inquiries and perimeter searches, in graphic overviews and data lists.
The program supports conversions between different Coordinate Systems and the distance calculation between localities. It calculates with Gauss Krueger coordinates referring to the Potsdam Datum (Bessel ellipsoid, Rauenberg) and with Geographic Coordinates on the geodetic datum WGS84. It also works with UTM coordinates, which refer to the datum ETRS89 (GRS80, geocentric).
ORTWIN can be run on most common networks. The client installations works automatically. It is possible to use Terminal Services on WINDOWS Servers like e.g. 'Citrix Terminal Server'.
Hardware and operating system requirements
Because the program ORTWIN is a quite complex database application, some requirements to the hardware are to be fulfilled for its perfect working. To ensure stable performance it should be installed on a personal computer with the processor class Pentium or higher and at least 32 MB RAM available. The program will run under Microsoft WINDOWS 2000 / XP / NT / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 and compatible operating systems.
