The Kontur Platform

The Kontur platform is a set of technologies that underpin Kontur’s solutions. It can be roughly broken down into (1) the data part, (2) the engine part, and (3) the insights part.

Kontur Data Part

Data

  • Real-time emergency data
  • Population data
  • Mapping data
Engine Data Part

Engine

  • Dataset correlation
  • Reachability analysis
  • Data visualization
Insights Data Part

Insights

  • Bivariate maps
  • Area reachable in x minutes
  • Coverage maps, etc.

The Kontur platform capabilities

Real-time event tracking

Real-time event tracking

Get briefed on the state of affairs in a disaster-hit area in real time. Assess risks, estimate impact to residents and infrastructure, and see what is needed to keep your people and assets safe.

Discover data correlations

Discover data correlations

Correlation is not necessarily causation, but a strong correlation between several datasets plotted against one another can provide eye-opening insights. For example, the data on the map shows a spike in both “earthquake” and “tsunami” tweets around the same time. So, the tsunami was likely caused by the earthquake.

Determine service area

Determine service area

Using our Area Split tool, you can quickly and accurately map out the service area reachable within, say, 20-60-120 minutes of time. The analysis is done considering real-life on-the-ground conditions like buildings, roads, and fences - hence the accuracy. The tool has two main use cases: splitting responsibility areas and determining optimal locations for new venues, offices or stations.

Analyze coverage with heatmaps

Analyze coverage with heatmaps

With bivariate maps, you can analyze relationships between datasets at a glance. Quickly see how an area is covered by the objects of your choice - e.g. shelters, coffee shops, satellite towers, etc. The format also lets you analyze the distribution of objects relative to some other factor. E.g., this map shows that, while Boston has a high population density, it is also well-covered with maps ⁠— so it’s marked with the color in the C3 quadrant.
