GINA Software Helps Rescue Teams During Natural Disasters 2011.09.03

Redmond, Wash., USA - September 1, 2011 - When Zbyněk Poulíček participated in Microsoft Imagine Cup last year, his dream to make an impact was already coming true - the project his team created with Windows Embedded technologies was helping relief workers during natural disasters halfway around the world. Live-mapping application that uses Windows Embedded technologies assists relief workers and emergency responders in global rescue efforts.

Redmond, Wash., USA - September 1, 2011

When Zbyněk Poulíček participated in Microsoft Imagine Cup last year, his dream to make an impact was already coming true - the project his team created with Windows Embedded technologies was helping relief workers during natural disasters halfway around the world.

“The initial intention was to create an interesting project for my diploma work, but Imagine Cup changed my point of view and inspired me to form a team to start the GINA project,” said Poulíček, who is now the co-founder of GINA Software, based in the Czech Republic.
“During development, the earthquake in Haiti was a very important milestone when we realized the significant potential of our concept.”

Poulíček and his team members, Petra Černá and Boris Procházka, knew only what they could see on TV about rescue efforts during the January 2010 earthquake
.

The GINA (Geographical INformation Assistant) Project introduces an innovative software system for mobile equipment offering navigation in difficult terrain, co-ordination of teams and the efficient exchange of geographical information. Its features make it an ideal tool for rescue teams, expeditions and other groups operating in extreme environments.

Reports showed emergency workers unable to locate people trapped in destroyed buildings
because they lacked the proper communications equipment, demonstrating the need for an information-sharing tool that provided up-to-date information about the situation.

The team decided it needed to create a mobile system that improved the efficiency of the rescuers while also ensuring their safety
.

Today, relief workers in disaster-stricken countries, including Haiti and Japan, use the geographical information assistant (GINA) mobile application that Poulíček’s team imagined.

Similar to a paper map, on which people can draw or stick pins to point out specific coordinates, GINA lets users insert their own locations through pictograms and share their updates with other mobile devices that have the software installed.

This real-time technology is ideal for emergency workers
and teams who need to have an accurate overview of rescue sites and track people in the field.

Before even competing in Imagine Cup, Poulíček said his team contacted Hand for Help, offering GINA software to assist with search efforts during the Haiti earthquake.

When GINA’s interactive mapping features proved successful in Haiti, the team turned its project into a professional endeavor by launching GINA Software
.

Now the company regularly supports relief agencies, as well as businesses seeking to lower costs for planning logistics and secure field workers and equipment

The GINA System mobile application runs on Windows Embedded Handheld,
which provides a robust and flexible solution that works well with the sturdy, industrial, mobile terminals used by GINA.

Windows Embedded Handheld
also meets key line-of-business scenarios and boosts productivity of the mobile enterprise workforce by enabling users to capture, access and act on business-critical information where and when they need it.

“What people can achieve thanks to advanced technology is what counts, and embedded technologies help transform great ideas into concrete solutions that will help solve severe problems,” said Olivier Bloch, technical evangelist, Windows Embedded at Microsoft. “Embedded technologies can and should enhance processes, getting information shared and analyzed faster and more efficiently, therefore helping solve lots of issues faced in remote locations, where the technologies commonly used in developed countries do not exist.”

The most challenging step for creating GINA System was designing an application that worked in the most desperate circumstances
.

Windows Embedded platforms and technologies enable developers to create systems that respond to the need for flexibility, connectivity and mobility within harsh conditions and critical situations, such as those created in the aftermath of the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan.

By utilizing Windows Embedded Handheld, the team could design its own protocols and data encodings in a familiar development environment and trust that the application would work almost everywhere.

Currently, GINA is used mostly by rescue workers and security professionals for team coordination and safety, but as its client base grows, the company is expanding beyond its original design to meet the needs of other industries based on client feedback.

For example, GINA Software intends to use next iterations of the application to collect information about biological hazards in the environment, which the company will then release to the general public.

“GINA System turned from a student project to a serious business very quickly, and it is a great motivation that, with our solution, we can help to make the world at least a slightly better place,” Poulíček said.

Geographical INformation Assistant - GINA


GINA is an interactive map software for mobile devices permitting navigation in difficult terrain, teams coordination and effective exchange of geographic information.

 
 
Due to its features, GINA is destined for crisis management centres, rescue teams and other groups operating in difficult conditions.

GINA is also used as an tool for effective enterprise management.

Thanks to the support of cadastral and satellite maps, GINA can also be used for geodetic surveys or for urbanistic works.

GINA is easy to control, because the use of the application has been inspired by an ordinary paper map.

Just like you can draw on a map with a pen and stick a pin of various colours in it, GINA enables you to insert your own drawings, and in place of pins, GINA offers pictograms.

However, GINA allows much more - inserting photographs or short videos, made using an in-built camera.

All this works in real time, so that inserted data are immediately available to all members of your team.

The same map can be thus viewed by an unlimited number of users, regardless of their current location.
