Framework Contract on GMES initial operations: emergency mapping validation service
The GMES initial operations — emergency management service is intended as an operational service offered to the authorised users active in the field of crisis management in the EU Member States, the European Civil Protection Mechanism, the Commission's Directorates-General (DGs) and the participating executive agencies and international humanitarian aid.
The core character of the GIO-EMS service lies in the provision upon activation by the authorised user of timely and accurate information derived from satellite imaging sensor data in all phases of the emergency management cycle. The information generated by the service can be used as supplied by the contractor (e.g. as digital or printed map outputs) or further combined with other data sources (e.g. as digital feature sets in a geographic information system (GIS)) to support analysis and decision-making processes of emergency managers.
The implementation of the GIO-EMS service foresees 3 different modules, where two modules (1. mapping in rush mode and 2. mapping in non-rush mode) have already been contracted at the beginning of 2012.
The 3rd module, the emergency mapping validation service provision - object of the present call for tender - is tailored to the on-demand verification of a sample of service outputs produced by the rush mode or non-rush mode services, and includes external quality control, validation of thematic information content and comparison to alternative information sources related to the emergency context.
