A state-of-technology Wildland & Forest Fire Management Web-Platform under constant technology evolution since 1990, as it evolved with the participation of high-tech institutions of international competence, whist it also withdrawals technology from the US Forest Service modelling centre. The Platform captures the vital dynamics demanded by Planers & Decision Makers engaged in the FF Life Cycle, and as such it has been used in numerous tactical operations in Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and other countries.
Morphology of Greece-1:10^6 to 1:25.000; Cities & Towns of Greece-1:5.000; GeoChartaTM, Geology of Greece-1:50.000, DTM/DSM/DEM. Other digital GIS data
Since 2000, EPSILON in association with both, the Law Offices of V. Falagarakis & Associates and the National Technical University of Athens, is geo-cataloguing and processing the laws and acts related to water and environment. Pollution standards, policy issues and other countries obligations are correlated to EC Directives, US laws and Acts, WHO and USDOT environmental quality requirements. The information will be available on the Internet as of 2008.
A complete Multimedia product about GIS and remote sensing for children aged 8-12 years. It combines a thematic adding and a user-friendly multi-media GIS environment, together with an electronic book and an accessible database of environmental and geographical information. The product is addressed to the primary and secondary market for users with little or no computer experience and use geo-relevant information. Central information source is the GRID (Global Resource Information Database) of the United Nations (UNEP). Other sources are the CORINE and EUROSTAT of the European Union
FalkTM Cartography-Hellenic Falk Editions
In association with the Mairs Geographischer Verlag, DE, EPSILON has assumed the production of the Falk maps & guides for Greece, for the entire country and in various scales. Products originate from the Digital Greece database of EPSILON expanded to capture the MGV high quality demands. The series involves the Hellenic regions, islands, mountains, cities, and special series. Products will be also available in electronic format for PDA applications.
FOMFIS is a management and forest fire prevention product. The FOMFIS system is structured on the Geographic Information System ARC-VIEW. Meanwhile, for the special functions FOMFIS designed five additional basic choices and created a number of icons needed to support and automate various functions. All system requirements for the management and processing of non-spatial data are covered by the database software SQL-Server at Microsoft. All of the above use the computing platform Intel's Pentium and Windows NT Server operating system from Microsoft. The five additional basic options of FOMFIS are the input of fuel maps, management of maps and data (administration), the creation of scenarios, the design definition (planning) and analysis and presentation of results ( reports). The possibilities offered by FOMFIS, as a basic planning tool, are very important for the administrator of an act.
MED-NPS is a product used in addressing environmental problems created by non-point pollution. The MED-NPS consists of a mathematical estimation model for other pollution that makes use of satellite images and connects to the GIS software ARC / INFO. MED-NPS is an integrated GIS software which incorporates the CORINE database and transmits knowledge to other Mediterranean countries not belonging to the European Union.
EPSILON produced the statistical database for the country, which has been linked to the NUTS-X geographic system of the country and the Eurostat development sectors of a country.
In addition, the system is compatible to the classifications of the National Statistical Office of Greece (ELSTAT) and International Industrial Coding Systems. The system is expandable to accommodate data of the private sector clients.
StatisticaTM can be optimally linked to Digital GreeceTM in order to serve multiple clients in business forecasting and sighting of offices, shops, facilities, insurance sales, and other industrial estimates.
The database and structure have been employed by the Statistical Offices of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia and Slovakia Republic (CopeStatTM, an EC project).
Previously, StatisticaTM was offered on a CD_ROM. Today, the system is offered in connection to the GIS database and the development sectors of Greece. It offers the 2001 Census data, ranging from population, to industrial growth, water & environment. This data can be statistically analysed and depicted on both, the NUTS-X classification of Digital Greece, and the individual municipal city block disaggregating level, thus, offering a powerful statistical tool for decision making.
MultiNet TM, a vector database, which contains highly accurate information about the road network of a country including nodes and railway stations and rivers. The city network (STNW) includes numbering information in both urban and rural areas. Urban roads also contain information about one-way and closed roads, tolls and ferry lines, traffic and signs. MultiNet TM also includes a categorization of roads for optimal navigation and route calculation.
National and local departments are included in the product, along with postal codes for most countries. Land use classification, industrial areas, beaches, forested areas, swamps, along with thousands points of interest in about 60 categories, airports, hospitals, railway stations, gas stations, restaurants, post offices, rentals and car sales are also included.. Voice instructions are also available for ease of navigation. The MultiNet TM is commercially available in five main mapping formats. GDF-AS (ASCII-Sequential) is the international standard format for navigable bases; GDF-AR (ASCII-Relational) which contains the same data as the GDF-AS but is faster especially in applications based on relational databases - the most widespread applications in GIS shape format (.shp) - ORACLE for Oracle Spatial Database Systems - RMF (Rich Map Format) which is mainly used for location-based service applications
???? (National Network of Environmental Information) is a web information system for processing of various environmental issues at local government level and at regional and national level. This network is the central mechanism for collection, processing and management of all environmental information concerning European issues and offers this information to the European Environment Agency (EEA).
