Februray 23, 2009 - GeoSamba Universal has been purchased by the NSW Fire Brigades (NSWFB) to support the organisation’s spatial capability.
The sophisticated mapping and geographic analysis system is currently being trialled by NSWFB to determine how it can be applied within the organisation.
GeoSamba is an Australian-built technology from iintegrate Systems, a subsidiary of NGIS Australia, that can share location intelligence across enterprise-wide systems and processes and combine it with live or static spatial information in real time.
“It’s a dynamic web application that can be used to coordinate risk management and responses to natural hazards and emergencies in real time,” NGIS Australia Principal Consultant Maurits van der Vlugt said.
“The product can provide online and query support for property and area information, as well as assisting with reporting, providing important spatial information across the state.
“Instantaneous and shared access to this valuable information is critical in efficiently managing all types of emergencies and GeoSamba is an effective tool when managing networks of information and infrastructure.”
GeoSamba Universal has been used in numerous breakthrough commercial projects, ranging from an award-winning management system for Australia’s biggest agribusiness company, to real-time incident monitoring during national counter-terrorism exercises.
The NSW Fire Brigades is one of the world’s largest urban fire and rescue services, managing fire emergencies in the state’s major cities and towns. Its purpose is to enhance community safety, quality of life and confidence by minimising the impact of hazards and emergency incidents on the people, environment and economy of New South Wales.
The NSWFB works with other government agencies to minimise the impact of bushfires, storms, floods, landslides, building collapses, motor vehicle accidents and other emergencies, also conducting prevention and preparedness programs to reduce their impact on the community.
GeoSamba Universal is available as a standard enterprise system, ready for use off-the-shelf, by emailing Email Contact. More information is available at www.geosamba.com.
