PCI Geomatics Software Assists with European Security and Emergency Management

Richmond Hill, Ontario – November 12, 2009: PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of geo-imaging software and systems, is pleased to announce that the National Survey and Cadastre in Denmark (KMS), has selected GeoConference software to assist with the planning, monitoring and coordination of land security and environmental activities.

GeoConference is a live geospatial meeting system that operates via the internet, and allows users to share maps, imagery and data simultaneously and interactively in real-time. KMS has used and evaluated GeoConference for exercises related to oil spills at sea as well as security events that involved multiple agencies within Denmark.

The National Survey and Cadastre's vision is to provide Denmark's public sector, private companies and general public with accurate and updated geographic information about the territories and waters of Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Since 2002, the National Survey and Cadastre has been responsible for Denmark's national geographic infrastructure. The country is moving towards the implementation of a broad eGovernment strategy in which geodata will serve a central role.

"GeoConference has enabled Danish authorities to cooperate across agency borders without having to change the way they work or replace their existing management solutions," said Nils Erik Jørgensen, head of TerraNor in Norway, and PCI Geomatics Reseller Partner responsible for European marketing of GeoConference. "The different agencies are able to proceed with work as usual. GeoConference offers a very cost effective and time effective cooperation tool with a minimal investment."

"GeoConference allows KMS to provide to Danish organizations a geospatial, real-time communication infrastructure that facilitates team coordination and response amongst numerous agencies involved with security and emergency situations," said Yves Carbonneau, Chief Product Specialist at PCI Geomatics. "Through the web conferencing capabilities, decision makers can immediately share the common operational picture and be made aware of the situation – regardless as to where they are located."
