Indonesia city improves situational awareness of firemen with GIS data capture app

The Department of Building and Fire in Bekasi, Indonesia's most populated suburb city with a population of over 2.3 million, has deployed a new GIS data capture application that allows firefighters to update and share information in the field.


With the new mobile GIS application, firemen and field officers can collect first-hand data and update it in real-time on the go.

This increases the visibility of department heads to make more informed decisions on deployment and improves situational awareness for other firefighters on site or on the way to the site.

The application also allows users to edit, measure, query and display spatial data.

The Department is responsible for protecting and securing the safety of its citizens. Besides fire control missions, the Department also has to prevent any kind of disasters, maintain infrastructures and provide related counsels in a timely way.
