Esri and National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (NCSIST) Silver Sponsors for GSDI 15
Esri has joined GSDI 15 as a Silver Sponsor and will be offering a workshop on “A Platform for Building Safe and Resilient Communities.” When a disaster strikes, knowing what you need and how to find it can be the key factor that saves lives, resources, and critical infrastructure. Limited data sharing between departments and agencies can be disastrous in an emergency situation. The workshop will demonstrate how to minimize the impact of an emergency by connecting people to the data and resources they need. Participants will see how WebGIS can enable the sharing of critical information both within and across organizations, enabling effective and controlled collaboration – empowering everyone to make faster and better decisions.
NCSIST is active in the development of an Intelligent Surveillance System (ISS), advancing the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) which connects sensors and other electronic devices through the Internet. Another focus includes the development of the Disaster Prevention and Relief System, a decision support system which includes a unified disaster framework, public resource management, and automatic, real-time public resource-disaster assignment. NCSIST’s work on mini-UAVs is being applied to disaster rescue and joint maneuvers of troops.
