GIS is an information system that brings together different location-based information sources (satellite imagery, background maps, GPS locations, geodatabases...). GIS allows you to view, analyse and visualize data in many ways that will reveale trends, relationships and patterns. Not only, you can draw maps but thanks to spatial queries, GIS allows you to assess the role of distance and space: what is the distance between a patient and the nearest medical emergency service? How many customers are at less than 15 km distance from my shop? Based on your data, your ideas, we design GIS to assist you in your project. We can also train you to use these tools to maximize your present and future results.
Bhutan is faced with several types of natural hazards such as earthquakes, landslides, floods and glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) that pose serious threat to the population. There is now a strong need for more risk assessment studies and works based on hazard mapping, exposure and vulnerability assessments. CAPRA software is introduced in Bhutan with the aim to help the country in building its capacity and knowledge on disaster management and assessment. We are helping the local CAPRA team to assess geodatabases and build the different files necessary to accomplish a Seismic Risk Assessment Exercise for Thimphu City.
The Palanpur study occupies a fairly unique place in development literature. The village of Palanpur, in Moradabad District, Uttar Pradesh (India), has been the subject of regular study by economists since the late 1950s. Significant analysis has been carried out on detailed field level data collected in previous studies. On the occasion of a field survey conducted in 2008-09, we developed a GIS on the village of Palanpur. By combining satellite images and the survey results, the GIS allows the research team the study of Palanpur''s farmland: property, crop type, acreage...
The SETUP project focuses on public policies to address social and territorial dynamics of slums in the four mega cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The definition and impact of public policies towards slums form the first line of research. The environmental consequences of the increasing number of slums located in the periphery of protected areas form the second line of research. We have prepared a series of maps localizing the ground surveys in the four cities. We also localized in a GIS the slums destroyed by the Delhi''s authorities over the past 20 years. We then prepared a series of maps on the demolition of slums in Delhi.
