Implementation of the GIS system

GIS: A powerful support tool for decision-making process in case of maritime accidents

The project will implement a Geographical Information System (GIS) with a portable and easy to use web-based decision support tool. This GIS will improve the response of local authorities in the event of a maritime accident. The system using an interractive Lagrangian module will be deployed at a territorial scale in the last phase of the project. It will allow authorities in charge to access critical data and applications and enable them to :

  • Access to Geospatial data (historical and new collected data).
  • Visualise ocean currents and dispersion of oil spill.
  • Visualise vulnerability and risk area.
  • Forecast the pathway of a floating object according to observed and modeled surface currents.
