Esri, GICHD partner to aid removal of land mines

  • GICHD is an international organization devoted to ridding the world of explosive hazards
  • GICHD’s next-generation version of IMSMA will further harness Esri‘s latest geospatial software
  • IMSMA can be used securely collect, aggregate, and share data via interactive maps
Esri and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining or GICHD have signed a memorandum of understanding or MOU, to eliminate land mines and explosive remnants of war using GIS. The MOU furthers Esri‘s support in modernising the Centre’s Information Management System for Mine Action. Built with Esri‘s GIS technology, the software system serves a critical purpose in the mine action process—understanding exactly where mines are located prior to conducting clearance. Jack Dangermond, President of Esri, believes that saving and enhancing people’s lives across the world depends on GICHD’s success, and the Centre’s success depends on accurate, up-to-date GIS solutions and information.
