GEOMAP received the mandate to develop an application to manage the environmental emergencies for the area of Quebec and also a profile to manage Saint-Laurent River’s shell zones.

The GIS application software is based on Autodesk’s MapGuide and GEOMAP GIS. GENIE was a geomatics desktop application based on MapInfo used to manage environmental emergencies and data exchange through File Transfer Protocol. The software’s objective was to:
  • Ease the cooperation between the interveners when there is an environmental emergency
  • Coordinate the relevant actions to provide an efficient action plan

GEOMAP was the commissioned to plan, develop and implement the new Web system that would replace GENIE and would be used to manage environmental emergencies. The system enables the interveners from different organisations to share the data in real time, optimize the decision making process and revamp the effectiveness to the emergency’s action plan. The system is now used by Ontario and Quebec’s governments. It permits cartographic data publishing, creation, deletion, and entity modification (incidents, buildings, routes, dispersion model, etc.), generating reports, spatial data analysis, document insertion and much more. The systems is available on Environnement Canada’s intranet and also through the extranet. It is possible to protect GEOMAP GIS with a security module that would necessitate a user name and a password in order to have access the software application.
