GeneGIS has been chosen as one of the three European companies – and the only Italian firm – authorised to provide GIS services for Frontex, under a 4-year framework contract.
Frontex is the European border and coast guard agency that controls and manages the European Union’s external borders, with responsibility for coordinating the pooled resources provided by the national authorities.
Geographical information systems (GIS) play an important role in Frontex. Activities such as planning, development and maintenance of GIS applications, supply of mapping services, processing of spatial data and relations with external geographical sources are considered essential for an agency tasked with control of the territory.
The GIS services that GeneGIS GI will be providing cover the design and integration of apps and software, development of spatial analysis tools, data management, advanced training of Frontex engineers.
