The project was supported by the World Bank and GFDRR (Global Fund for Disaster Reduction and Recovery).
The Data Platform of the Kyrgyz Republic on disaster risks is designed for building capacity and support for making effective decisions on disaster risk management in Kyrgyzstan. The platform is the main storage, retrieval, distribution, display, input and analysis of data aimed at reducing risk and mitigating effects of natural disasters, providing different levels of authorities, private sector and the public with more information and tools through which they can make weighted decisions.
The Data Platform was implemented using geo-spatial CMS GeoNode based on the Django framework with connected components: PostgreSQL / PostGIS, GeoServer, GeoExplorer and Python libraries.
Users working in the field of disaster risks can quickly find the necessary data, view and download them to their computers, upload their data and exchange them through OGC services. In the Data Platform, there are also tools that allow drawing maps from existing cartographic layer, printing them out or publishing them on the Internet in the form of interactive web maps.
