Kontur is a geospatial data and real-time risk management solutions provider for humanitarian, private, and governmental organizations.
We utilize a combination of data processing and innovative mapping technologies to provide visual, location-based insights.
Kontur situation awareness tools cut through the noise and identify the impact resulting in response strategies, may it be in disaster management, insurance, or supply chain strategies.
Our background goes back to working with disaster management organizations for almost 20 years. Organizations like Pacific Disaster Center deal with humanitarian aspects of emergencies, in particular preparedness, response, and recovery in order to lessen the impact of disasters. Kontur is helping PDC provide insights into the collection of hazard- and disaster-related data and raise situational awareness during and in preparation of critical events.
With gaining our expertise in disaster management and geospatial analytics, we began to create our own solutions and offer them to businesses. We have become a reputable partner in providing geoinformation services for insurance, logistics, and other companies.
Eager to share our expertise with the community, we provide some of our solutions for non-profit organizations such as the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team.
One of such cases is the creation of Disaster Ninja, a complete disaster management solution that allows visualizing mapping gaps, connecting with locals for ground truth verification, exploring OSM communities, and obtaining information about recent natural disasters.
We maintain Kontur Population – the ultimate publicly available global population model which is being constantly improved by collecting and processing all publicly available data.
We also build Kontur Boundaries dataset to provide an open useful way to perform analytics on different administrative levels. We base it on OpenStreetMap and fix the issues in the upstream open data using Disaster Ninja Reports.
By building solutions for our customers we develop a visualization & processing platform for the data-driven strategy needs. It helps find the patterns that you should be focusing on.
With the platform you can:
- Track events in real-time
- Discover data correlations
- Visualize data gaps
- Estimate risks and impact
- Get notified about changes in the course of events
- Analyze service coverage and areas reachability
