The safety of the general public is always of paramount importance. OSi mapping and GIS technology allows those entrusted with keeping people safe to have the tools available to them to do so in the most efficient and effective manner.

Event organisers can identify the most appropriate routes to ensure the safety of vast numbers of people congregated in one place.

The analytical power of a GIS allows patterns of severe weather to be detected so that location intelligence allows flood defences to be positioned where they are most required. OSI mapping and Geographical Information Systems go hand in hand in ensuring that you and your family are as safe as todays modern technology can possibly make you.
