To provide the Majella National Park – one of the three national parks in Italy’s Abruzzo region, covering the provinces of Pescara, Chieti and L’Aquila – with a web-based system to manage damage caused to crops and livestock by wild animals.
GeneGIS GI was awarded the service contract thanks to the quality of its offer.
The preparatory activities for the development of the application involved a detailed preliminary requirements analysis, the design of the data structure and web application, and the supply and installation of all the necessary software (client and server). Subsequently, GeneGIS GI guaranteed personnel training, maintenance and support services.
The spatial database of the web-based application is based on Open Source technologies.
The procedure for damage caused by wild animals begins with the report presented by the damaged party, followed by a report by the State Forestry Department. The next step is an “assessment” and a “compensation proposal”; if this is accepted, the procedure is closed. If the proposal is rejected, a “new assessment” is carried out, and a “new compensation proposal” is drawn up. The entire procedure is managed on the web-based platform.
Specific forms are provided to monitor and archive all documentation on damage to crops and livestock. The damage reports are drawn up by veterinary personnel.
The GeneGIS GI platform improves access to and introduction of alphanumeric data with an easy-to-use web-based solution.
The use of Open Source technologies enables cost-effective operation and maintenance.
Furthermore, the application for GIS data management does not impose any limits on the number of users.
