Developing a Digital Atlas of All Natural Disasters in Greece

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Educational institutions often play a key role in developing the GIS research and insights for allowing any nation to be better prepared to handle natural disasters.

In addition, with natural disasters on the rise, many countries are looking to both enhance their overall planning efforts, as well as better leverage geospatial technologies in ways that increase overall response efforts – with the ultimate goal being more lives saved.

Intergraph recently announced that Kavala Institute of Technology’s Department of Forestry and Management of Natural Environment is doing precisely this for the country of Greece.

The educational institution is using Intergraph®’s ERDAS APOLLO 2013 for the management, analysis and delivery of geospatial data for disaster response in Greece.

Working closely with Intergraph’s channel partner in Greece, Geosystems Hellas, the Kavala Institute is collecting and cataloguing digital material in a spatial data infrastructure to support the detection, prevention and management of natural disasters. It is also leveraging the exploitation and visualization capabilities of free web services from international certified organizations.
