LOGIS/SIMSAS (Security Information Management and Security Analysis System) GeoWeb Portal of the United Nations Logistics Cluster Support Cell at the UN World Food Programme (WFP) in Rome, Italy.
The Logistics Cluster was endorsed by the Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC) in September 2005. Under the lead of WFP, the Logistics Cluster is responsible for ensuring coordinated and effective logistics preparedness and response among the UN agencies and humanitarian partners. The Information Management Unit of the Logistics Cluster provides support to logistics preparedness and response through the management and distribution of crucial geospatial and non geospatial data.
The LOGIS/SIMSA project entails the development of a web based Geographic Information System (GIS) application which will be composed of a web based application for Logistic Operations (GeoWeb Portal), and an Emergency Response Portal.
The GIScience Research Group of the Heidelberg University supports the development of this Web portal.
