The local Authority-Sighetu Marmatiei -is a very important actor in the Project’s outcomes.
GeoSES Project is aimed to help local authorities by developing up-to-date risk maps,by using both topographic data and GIS technology as a decision support and contributing to the provision of solutions to stabilize landslides and ultimately lead to less materials damage and loss of life. The local authorities,represented by the City Hall of Sighetu Marmatiei are aware of the importance of drawing up risk maps by specialists, who take into account the influencing factors, such as the configuration of the natural terrain (slope) with landslide potential, the physical-mechanical characteristics of land,the abundant rainfall in spring and autumn. The detection in due time of areas with landslide potential are main targets for the panned constructions,anthropic interventions and the provision of solutions for their stabilization.
Currently, most decisions at national or local level, in various fields of activity, such as demography, territorial planning, areas affected by hazards, infrastructure, real estate valuation, etc. involves spatial data and maps. Our team of specialists participates in the acquisition, manipulation, visualization and analysis of geospatial data related to hazards, which must be integrated into a GIS, in order to adopt the most appropriate methods of environmental protection and conservation.
