Dispatcher 112

Kontur’s call center app automates fire brigades dispatchers’ routine to win life-saving minutes

In case of a fire alert, dispatchers have to perform multiple tasks, ranging from clarifying the emergency area and its severity to sending the right amount and equipment types from the nearest fire stations. Kontur’s Dispatcher 112 app performs these processes simultaneously assisting operators and saving time for those who save lives.

The app is used as a demo for fire brigade dispatchers, but can be adapted to any call center service.

Fire dispatcher service highly depends on personnel’s experience and precision. Dispatchers have to make diverse decisions while going through their protocol, although a lot of those can be automated.

To validate the exact incident location, determine the closest fire brigades, and know the risk factors for every building inside the city, to make sure all necessary special equipment is sent to respond accordingly – those are just a few of the required tasks to execute.

See the nearest fire stations to the emergency scene and assess available equipment types instantly.

All these tasks require maximum concentration and synchronization between dispatchers under constant pressure. These factors can lead to human errors. Automation helps reduce operators’ cognitive load.


We used Kontur’s expertise and technologies and added some custom solutions to give emergency dispatchers a Computer Aided Dispatch tool that helps make prompt decisions.

  • Our search engine provides a typo-proof address search.
  • We use a custom routing algorithm for fire trucks taking into account special traffic rules.
  • We provide on-map drawing tools to perform quick measurements of an area on fire or the fire hydrants’ distance.
  • We sort the fire stations by their remoteness and show the available equipment within every station.

We constantly implement new features to the app based on fire dispatchers’ request voluntarily using our tool that proved its utility.

Catchment Area Analysis

If you’re in the business of selling goods or services, then you know how important it is to get them to your customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. One useful tool for this is catchment area creation.

Custom Basemaps

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.

Data Services

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.

Disaster Loss Estimation

Estimating losses in the event of a disaster is difficult, and initial loss predictions rarely match the actual costs.

We created an algorithm to compute monetary loss based on statistical data using Kontur Platform capabilities.

Disaster Ninja

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.

Event Feed

Get information about changes in the course of events from reputable sources via a simple service and use that to make decisions about people, infrastructure and assets faster.

Global Fires

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.

Population Density Dataset

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.

Site selection analysis

Site selection analysis is a critical process that involves a comprehensive assessment of potential locations for a business operation, such as a new store, manufacturing plant, or office. It entails gathering and analyzing various factors, such as market socioeconomics, competition, transportation and infrastructure, labor availability, real estate costs, and regulatory environment.

By conducting this analysis, businesses can make informed decisions about where to establish or expand their operations while considering the strengths and weaknesses of each potential area.

Smart City Tools

Kontur offers various tools to empower municipal authorities, urban planners, and businesses with geospatial analytics and situational intelligence for achieving smart city objectives.
