We are building the ultimate publicly available global population dataset by obtaining and processing all available data and fixing all known issues.
It was initially developed as a fundamental part of Disaster Ninja to help Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team take actions confidently based on data correlated with population density.
Disaster Ninja lets emergency cartographers prepare mapping tasks in minutes instead of hours.
When a disaster strikes, humanitarian mapping teams face such challenges as choosing the area that needs to be mapped as quickly and accurately as possible. Our interactive dashboard helps save precious time by presenting the event’s details and all available datasets in a succinct, visual form.
Kontur offers specialized basemaps that do not interfere with the display of overlayed colored data.
You can get OpenStreetMap-based map styles made with MapCSS for your products.
Global Fires viewer visualizes fire data globally and helps find spots free from smoke pollution during wildfire season.
In case of fire unfolding outside your window, it is vital to know where to find breathable areas nearby. When a threat develops rapidly information should be available at your fingertips. Therefore Kontur has been able to gather information about fires and air quality conditions into a tool available for mobile devices in real-time.
Dispatcher 112 app helps dispatchers locate the closest fire stations and send the fire brigades faster to the emergency scene.
The laconic solution includes a typo-proof address search, custom routing algorithm for fire trucks, street length, and roof area measuring tools. The technology works well for the Minsk Fire Dept. and can improve disaster response worldwide.
Kontur offers advanced mapping and data services.
Whether you face logistic challenges having just addresses you have to put on a map or if you have the whole country insured and want to estimate potential risks in case of disaster, we can enrich your data using various Kontur Platform capabilities.
