BGSP received Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Awards

22 October 2019 - Defence Geospatial Division (BGSP), JUPEM was awarded Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Awards for 2019 in recognition of their innovation and excellence in applying mapping and spatial analytics which was presented by Mr. Tan Choon Sang, Chief Executive Officer of Esri Malaysia at the Senior Leaders Forum at Sofitel Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

The award was announced at the Esri User Conference in San Diego, California on 8 - 12 July 2019.

BGSP was recognised for Centralised GeoCentric Disaster Management - a collaborative platform built to help anticipate and better respond to natural disasters.

The platform was put to task during a flood disaster and played an important role in collecting and sharing real-time data. This helped relevant agencies to work together to coordinate rescue missions, prioritise critical areas, and optimise resource distribution.
