Esri ArcGIS Mapping Platform to Power Demining Org’s Info Mgmt System

EsriEsri‘s ArcGIS mapping platform will power the Geneva International Center for Humanitarian Demining’s risk reduction and information management system for explosive remnants of war.

The company said Thursday it will integrate its technology into GICHD’s Information Management System for Mine Action or IMSMA Core and support the organization’s migration of existing functions to the ArcGIS platform.

The partnership aims to provide GICHD an environment for information transfer in support of the organization’s mine removal programs, Esri added.

IMSMA Core works to provide information to drive demining, victim assistance, mine risk education and other efforts of the mine action community.

Esri said GICHD can also utilize new geographic information systems technology from the ArcGIS platform without the need for new custom software.

Individual field operators as well as national mine action centers and authorities across 40 mine-affected countries and territories use IMSMA Core, Esri added.
