The paper presents a novel design of a web-based Safe City & Coastal Zone GIS (SCCZ-GIS) which integrates data acquired from different remote sensing and geospatial data sources for monitoring the security of the coastal zone, its inhabitants and Critical Infrastructure. The system utilizes several innovative technologies and directly co-operates with different remote sensing data sources and services, like a satellite ground station...
Geographic Information System for Flood Hazard Analysis and Early Warning Using Numerical Weather Predictions
Floods are a phenomenon which causes significant losses of lives as well as property damage, which in turn severely impact the local economy. The nature of a flooding has been well researched, and several methods of flood hazard simulation have been established over the last decades. The current legislation in the European Union requires the Member States to create, maintain and update flood risk and hazard maps, as well as identify...
The article presents the client‐server approach in the navigation system for the blind ‐ “Voice Maps”. The authors were among the main creators of the prototype and currently the commercialization phase is being finished. In the implemented prototype only exemplary, limited spatial data were used, therefore they could be stored and analysed (for path-finding process) in the mobile device’s memory without any difficulties. The...
